'Glorious' day at Enfield Borough Council's annual autumn show
Hundreds of people turned up to celebrate a “magnificent and spectacular” autumn show in the sunshine.
Enfield Town Park in Cecil Road was transformed into a hub of activity, with dancers and musicians taking centre stage as child and adults enjoyed the last of the summer weather.
The show, now in its 60th year, included an impressive bird of prey display, a dance show and a gymnastic performance .
For the children, the highlight of the day was the fun fair, which featured a jungle-themed bouncy castle and various merry-go-rounds.
Three-year-old Maria Ridgeway said: “I have had lots of fun. The bouncy castle was really cool - there were elephants and other animals inside and I can jump really high in it.
“I can’t wait to come back again next year.”
Her father, Ed Ridgeway, agreed the day had been a success and said his three children “loved every minute”.
He said: “I’m impressed - we’ve recently moved to the area so this is our first year here, but it looks great.
“The children have absolutely loved it and have had a great time. It’s definitely been worth coming down and I’d recommend it.”
Talented pooches and their owners also wowed crowds of people at the dog show, with many picking up prizes in various different categories.
Singing sensation Lurine Cato, who won the best recorded song award at the Gospel Awards in Germany last year, performed her hit song ‘You Revive Me’.
Mother Wendy Weenen said: “It’s been spectacular so far. The dancers are amazing - they’re all so talented.
“The council always puts on shows like this and it’s always a brilliant day. It’s great to see the children enjoying themselves and having fun.
“There’s something for people of all ages here which is why I think it’s always a great day.”
Her son, Oliver Weenen, nine, said: “I think all the rides here are really cool - I’m having a great time.”
The event, organised by Enfield Borough Council, was supported by members of the Edmonton Rotary Club who manned the doors and sold tickets.
Some of the proceeds from the day will be going towards rotary charities,including Jaipur Limbs, which produces cheap and realistic artificial legs.
Former club president Chandu Patel said: “It’s been magnificent. The sunshine is glorious and everyone is having a wonderful time.
“It’s been a fantastic atmosphere and the club is pleased to help support this event.”
