Wrexham town centre was converted into a giant play area this afternoon with huge crowds turning out to enjoy all the fun and games which were on offer.

Easily one of the biggest annual events in the town, Play Day returned today with a wealth of activities for children of all ages.

Despite heavy rain throughout the morning, the weather was certainly on Play Day’s side, with the clouds clearing and sunshine breaking through just in time for the afternoon kick-off.

The earlier bout of bad weather failed to dampen spirits, with huge crowds turning out to enjoy an afternoon of free fun and some free car parking.

Organised by Wrexham Council’s play team, the event saw activities such a giant sandpit, a waterslide and a giant makeshift game of Kerplunk take over Queens Square and Llwyn Isaf.

There was also the opportunity to take part in a huge game of volleyball, crafts and explore the maze on Llwyn Isaf.

Other activities included football, water fights and er, jumping (or back flipping in some cases) off a tower of boxes onto a pile of crash mats – this activity did prove to be quite popular!

The paving outside the Guildhall also got a bit of a spruce up courtesy of some chalk artwork.
