A STILT walking 'angel' with colourful balloon wings delighted visitors of all ages at Rhyl's Mayor's May Day on Saturday.

The event, held in the high street, also brought with it plenty of 'clowning around' - a living statue entertained crowds and little ones tried their hands at circus skills.

The day also featured Punch and Judy, giant bubbles, face painting, stalls, strongmen competitions and the Batala Bangor drumming band.

The world's smallest solar-powered cinema also added to the day.

The free event was the last for Rhyl's outgoing mayor cllr Alan James.

He said: "Rhyl is undergoing a huge period of regeneration, but we don’t forget our roots and the town council wanted to bring back some traditional, seaside fun with added new twists.

“This is the first time we’ve held the Mayor’s May Day and we were pleased to see so many people having a go at the circus skills, winning prizes on the hook-a-duck and hoopla stalls, watching mini films in the cinema, taking selfies with our living statue and chasing giant bubbles.

“This was our way of thanking local people for their patience during a period of regeneration and building in Rhyl and seeing the smiles as people came together for a day of fun was terrific."

The next town council-organised event will be Rhyl Seafest later this month.

There will be the chance to make mini sand sculptures and a special visit will be made from a 'giant, inflatable lobster'.

Seafest will be held on May 28 from 11am on Rhyl's High Street.
