Hundreds of people look set to join the festive fun day at East Carlton County Park today (Sunday December 9).

The event started earlier this morning and park officials have urged people to come along and join in the fun.

Lloyd Baines-Davies, the play and recreation officer for Corby Borough Council, said it would be a lovely family day out for the entire family.

He added: “ We have lots of stuff going on here today so come along and have some fun, and spend a bit of time with Father Christmas.

“You can try our lovely cream tea, or the special coffee that we do here or browse the packed car boot sale.

“All proceeds today are going towards Corby Carnival 2013 and parking is free, so come along and have some great festive fun with the park and Corby Borough Council.”

There are plenty of activities going on throughout the day - children have a chance to win tea with Santa in a Christmas card decorating competition and they can visit Father Christmas in his grotto for £1.

There is also a £1 quiz and a raffle, which costs £1 to enter, with a massive prize and the winner ticket will be drawn by Mayor of Corby,

A large car boot sale will also be at the country park for merry revellers to browse and buy.

Entry is free to the park and the activities continue until 4pm today.
