Leyland Festival 2016 was described as ‘one of the biggest ever’ by many of the volunteer staff working on the day. A mixture of beautiful weather and dozens of attractions drew in people in the thousands.Advertisement
With food-stands, ‘Paws in the Park’ dog show, Street Monkeys, giant kites and many more, those who turned up were spoiled for choice over the activities on offer. There was even a closed-off pen for children to ‘beat’ their fathers at football (with plenty of fouls!) This year’s edition of the popular festival truly catered for all; from a rock-climbing wall to a Rock FM concert, a beer tent to even a goat mingling with the dogs.
Despite the occasional cloud breaking up the sun and warmth, the dog show saw some record-breaking applicants, with the ‘prettiest female’ attracting 18 owners with their dogs in tow.
