The annual Sun Festival Kids Party is on today, in the Waring Gardens from 9am to 1pm.

There will also be rides, a jumping castle and other interactive activities for the youngsters.
A tradition of the Kids’ Party is the balloon launch, where each child gets their name on a balloon that is released during the day.
