Today, we have been at Little Fun Fest at York Maze. We've had loads of fun and done some fabulous things. There was so much to do that we didn't get chance to do everything. There were shows constantly from 11am over two different stages, a fun-fair, various characters wandering about to meet, and most of the usual York Maze attractions. The shows were packed with familiar (and less familiar) faces including Alex, Mister Maker, and Mr Bloom from CBeebies, and children's entertainers such as That Poetry Bloke, and puppets from Phil Fletcher.
I've written about York Maze before, so I won't bombard you with all the details. Instead, here's our photos from today. If you have funsters under 10 who like CBeebies, Harry Potter, singing and dancing, and general mayhem, they'll love Little Fun Fest. Watch out for one near you soon!

What I loved about Fun Fest was that there was no hanging around - the longest we waited for anything was around 15 minutes for the face painting. There were enough people without it being ram-packed. There was a lovely informal, family atmosphere. Stars mingled among the guests - at one point I caught a glimpse of Spiderman on the bouncing pillow with some boisterous funsters.
We loved our latest trip to York Maze, and our funsters had the most a-maize-ing time!
Disclosure - we were given complimentary tickets to attend this event.
