Photograph of the Day – Aeroplanes at the Waterworks(amongst other things)

The Waterworks Park in North Belfast (off the Antrim Rd) was taken over by Belfast Children's Festival. Community groups, Youth clubs and Volunteers were there from 6am to help decorate the park with all manner of streamers and created 'mobiles'. Activities ranged from the usual face painting and craft activities to roaming performers,stilt walkers, jugglers and the like. Not forgetting the 30 second movie theatre (only 2 people at a time), a BMX/Skateboard demonstration ramp. The was also a live music stage where the best of up and coming musicians showcased their music. I heard one child ask her Mum if the park was going to be like this every weekend over the summer. A great event and one that'd i'd heartily recommend for next year.
