A host of children's favourites will be making their way to West Park next month for an annual Family Fun Day. In the Night Garden's Iggle Piggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka, along with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Peppa and George Pig, Bob the Builder, Dora the Explorer, Hello Kitty, Spiderman, Olaf and Barney, the Mermaid Princess, Cinderella and even a Minion will be at the event organised by West Midlands Police and Wolverhampton City Council.
Now in its sixth year, other attractions sure to keep the whole family entertained at the event include sport taster sessions, an inflatable assault course and bouncy castles, pony rides, a football competition with Wolves Kickz, laser dome, paintball range, quad bikes, bungee run, face painting and more.
Members of the Wolverhampton branch of the Parachute Regiment will be bringing along a selection of Second World War vehicles for people to see while Signal 107 will be broadcasting live from the event, which takes place on Saturday 15 August, 2015, from 10am-6pm.
PC Joe Trusselle, from Wolverhampton Police, said: “Last year’s event was a real success with around 4,000 visitors from across the city, and we were able to raise vital funds for local charities in the process.
“With pony rides, inflatable assault courses and bouncy castles, sports sessions and of course guest appearances by children's favourites from TV and cinema, it's bound to be fantastic fun for all the family."
Councillor John Reynolds, Wolverhampton City Council’s Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "We are delighted to support this ever popular event which provides a great day out for the whole community."
Entry is free and money raised from charity raffles will go to Wolverhampton Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre and the Wolverhampton branch of the Parachute Regiment.
