Play Close was brought to life over the bank holiday when hundreds of families attended Melton Show and Festival.
The fun fair event, organised by the Wood family, attracted visitors of all ages on Sunday and Monday, thanks largely to entry being free again.
The exhilarating entertainment included wrestling, a new funhouse, the Nuneaton Dog Training Club, wild west re-enactments, Melton Mowbray Toy Soliders Band, dodgems, craft marquees, stalls, a visit from the RSPCA and Melton Fire Service and Moto Stunts International.
Ashley Wood said: “We were very happy with the numbers in attendance this year. We want to build on this next year by appealing to more local business to get involved and get in touch.
“Though the weather wasn’t quite as good on Monday, it didn’t stop lots of families coming and having a great time.
“Overall, the two days were smashing and we received lots of positive feedback on our Facebook page from visitors. As a family the Woods’ have attended Melton Day for years and we thoroughly enjoyed this one.”
