While the children are enjoying themselves on the rides, parents may like to wander around the stalls, which include a plant sale, bookstall, delicious cakes, second-hand corner and Cent Auction. Don't forget to try your luck on the laughing clowns, or try out on putt a buck, lob a choc or dare an adventure into the haunted house. Dads may like to have fun and get wet on the super sucker. Before your day is done, do not forget to purchase show bags to take home.
