HUNDREDS of youngsters converged on Keighley's Victoria Park this afternoon for a giant play day.

A massive range of free activities was provided for children of all ages, from tots to teens.

And there was something to cater for everyone.

"The great thing is that whatever the young person's interest there is something here that will satisfy that," said Caleb Sutton, Bradford Council's early childhood services manager for 5-11s, speaking during the event.

"It has gone extremely well.

"The event is organised through the local authority but a number of partner organisations have come along and the aim is to get children involved in different play experiences and types."

Attractions included games, stalls, cooking on an open fire, crafts, inflatables, bouncy castles, a slide, climbing wall, rope swings, a sand pit and donkey rides.

Skyride provided cycling tuition for youngsters.

And brave visitors could get up close with reptiles including a bearded dragon, corn and hognose snakes, train millipede, locusts, cockroaches and a stick insect-like horse-headed hopper.
