Carlisle Utd players drop in on city centre play day
Last updated at 08:12, Friday, 06 August 2010
Play was the order of the day as hundreds of children spent the day enjoying the fresh air and having fun.
The city centre became a huge play park with giant inflatables, a skate ramp and oversized musical instruments like bongos.
There were also arts and crafts, games and dressing-up to mark National Play Day.
Carlisle United players Gary Madine and Tony Kane dropped in to take part in some street dancing with teacher Makinder Rayat.
Events, including the chance to make a traditional toy, also took place in the Guildhall and Tullie House Museum.
Councillor Olwyn Luckley, responsible for community engagement, said: “This year’s Play Day was a great family event. Lots of local organisations and groups signed up and there were lots of free activities for all tastes and ages.”
