CROWDS flocked to a fun-packed day of summertime festivities.

Hawarden Carnival was held on the Gladstone Playing Fields on Saturday from 1pm.

The sun bathed villagers and visitors from further afield on a beautiful afternoon with the expected rain holding off.

Hawarden community councillor Judith Hough said the day had been “absolutely amazing”.

Children and adults took full advantage of Harry Sharlands funfair and when everyone had their fill, there was plenty more to keep carnival-goers entertained.

A display of vintage cars kept classic motor enthusiasts happy and urban sports fans were treated to a demonstration from experts, including skateboarder Simon Davies from Chester.

There were plenty of opportunities for visitors to show off their sporting prowess with young and old challenging each other to archery and five-a-side competitions.

And many had a closer than usual look at some two and four-legged friends at the mini farm.

Cllr Hough, who was cooking on the barbecue, said it had been wonderful seeing the large number of visitors at the carnival gates.

New attractions including sumo suit wrestling and donkey rides “went down a storm”.

She was particularly pleased the rain had held off for the football tournament.

“They come from far and wide,” she said. “It’s really wonderful and they don’t want to be playing in the rain! The carnival is always a big success, but I’d say this year surpassed the past few.

“It was lovely.”
