Mrs James said 1300 people were counted walking through both gates and the feedback from parents and children was positive.
‘‘We will continue (the festival) next year,’’ she said.
Although donations have not been counted, Mrs James expects to have a healthy budget for next year’s event, which allowed children to experience fun activities at a low cost.
Mrs James said the most popular activities at the festival were face painting, instrument and cape making, Scientwists and the bungee trampoline.
The committee will meet next week to review the event and start planning for next year’s festival.
