Victoria Esplanade in Palmerston North was taken over by visitors on Sunday, as the City celebrates Explore Esplanade Day 2020. There were hundreds of families trooping in from 10am when the event started until 4pm. A walk around revealed that there was no dull moment at every turn. The bright summer day was perfect for kids to move and play around with so much fun.

There were lots to play with, including free train ride, games, dance, exploring the playground and playing with mobile toys. Some were riding the bumper cars, swimming at the paddling pool or watching live music. Kids also played with a new rotate coffee cup ride and inflatable water walking balls.

Visitors toured the amazing Central Energy Trust Wild-base Recovery and checked out food and craft stalls. There were overwhelming attractions and amazing natural beauties to behold on a perfect summer Sunday.
