Brinnington Fun Day 2013

This is one of the best events on the calendar. Every year, the second Saturday in July, the annual fun day has been held on the park. Over the years, there’s been so much to see and do and activities for all. Face painting for the kids, henna tattoos for the *ahem* slightly older generation.¬†

There’s been no shortage of food or drinks over the years – every year, there’s been something good and hot served outside the pavillion, ice creams, cold drinks and lush smoothies. As for the weather, it’s always managed to be fantastic on the day. It’s almost as though the organisers have arranged the good weather as well as the array of assorted stalls over the years.

And as well as stalls, the food & drinks, there’s also been a wide variety of skills demonstrated over the years too. ¬†From karate to boxing, from morris dancing to majorettes and Jousting to rock climbing with a little bit of rapping along the way too.

This years promotional video for the fun day is to remind you how good it’s been, and we do hope to see you on the day.

The ‘Your Brinnington’ media team will be there – don’t be shy, come and say hello!

(We don’t bite – honest!)

Don’t forget – admission to the event is FREE. It takes place on Brinnington Park (Northumberland Road) from 1pm.

We look forward to seeing you there!
