Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

THOU­SANDS of peo­ple in­clud­ing Mac­cles­field fam­i­lies de­scended on Ar­ley Hall in Cheshire for the Geron­imo fam­ily fes­ti­val.

The event, which fea­tured a host of CBee­bies stars in­clud­ing Justin Fletcher and Andy Day, is now in its third year with this year’s fes­ti­val the biggest yet.

The three-day ex­trav­a­ganza aimed at chil­dren aged be­tween two and 12 was split into 10 zones - 3ft And Un­der, Adren­a­line, Cir­cus, Pas­ture, Funky Junk, Li­brary, Cu­rio-City, Arena, Geronos­tage and The­atre.

The new Cu­rio-City fea­tured weird and won­der­ful at­trac­tions in­clud­ing the cool Cam­era Ob­scura, while Spin­ney Hol­low had ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren of all ages.

Huge crowds went to see TV’s Jus­tine Fletcher, aka Mr Tum­ble, who en­ter­tained chil­dren with clas­sic hits and nurs­ery rhymes.

Other big hits were the joust­ing knights, in­flat­able as­sault course, don­key rides and Cirque de Hi­lar­i­ous.

Among the stalls was Bolling­ton for­ager James Wood who was pro­mot­ing his To­tally Wild UK ven­ture.

Jenna Bo­s­tock and her fam­ily had a great time. She said: “It’s a fan­tas­tic day out. Can­not wait for next year, al­though will be book­ing a week­end ticket next time as there is so much to see and do.”

Jemma Gal­ley agreed: “We went last year at Tat­ton and this year too! It’s al­ways fab!

Susie De­laney said: “We loved it so much in­cluded for your money and no long queues.

“We will try the camp­ing next year.”
