MORE than 1500 visitors flocked to this year’s Festival in the Park in Rhyl.

Despite some early showers, organisers and supporters of the event - which was held in the Botanical Gardens on Grange road, put up gazebos to keep guests sheltered and were able to enjoy “an amazing day”.

The day featured the Medieval Falconry team, chainsaw carving, donkey rides, the Vale Ladies Choir, Giant inflatables which included a gladiator joust and a giant equaliser, with two contestants pulling against one another on a giant bungee rope, a giant slide and Mr Magico put on a magic show.

There was also stalls, teddy tombola, adult tombola, fairground games, craft and plant stalls.

A spokesperson from the Botanical Gardens Community Association, said:

“Considering the rain first thing, which we expected to put people off, we had an amazing day with a vast number of visitors. Despite one or two things on the programme having to be cancelled we still ended up with lots for people to see. We had in the region of 1500 to 2000 visitors over the course of the day.

“I would like to thank everyone who came out despite the iffy weather and say a big thank you to all the volunteers who made the day such a success.”
