Warminster Town Council has invited everyone to this year’s Spring in the Park following last year’s hugely successful event held at the award winning Lake Pleasure Grounds.
Taking place on Sunday 5 May from 11am to 4pm and to ensure that no one misses out on the fun, maps highlighting the stalls and various events will be available at the event or in advance from the Pavilion café or the Civic Centre. New this year will be a performance from the Warminster and Westbury Rock Choir, guaranteed to raise everyone’s spirits!
Visitors will find an eclectic mix of the traditional, the quirky and the different with a fun filled blend of Maypole dancing, Punch & Judy, donkey rides, a dog show presented by Charismatic Pets and Garston veterinary surgery, craft and charity stalls and a climbing wall.
There will be food and drink aplenty with a Cider Tent featuring up to eight different ciders and a stall offering Gin and Prosecco! A feast of food vendors will offer goodies ranging from pulled pork burgers to spicy chicken, chilli dogs and a choice of three different pizzas courtesy of the Wild Pizza Company. This will be the first time Wild Pizza has been available at Spring in the Park and owner Dom explains, “our whole operation is contained inside a vintage horse trailer, including a wood fired oven that cooks at over 400 degrees. We only use the best vegetarian and vegan ingredients to ensure maximum flavour for minimum environmental impact.”
Particularly popular with children is the Petting Farm with a variety of animals including a miniature horse, goats and sheep, plus someone on hand to answer any specific questions. With even more stalls than last year, charity stalls will feature a mix of different family friendly activities like the curiously named Human Fruit Machine, Face Painting and the ever popular Test Your Strength. Visitors will also have a fantastic mix of items to browse among and buy from a selection of traditional stalls including jewellery, ranges of beautiful handcrafted products, candles, books, gifts and clothing. There will also be pocket money toys and sweets for the children.
Just £5 will buy you a Cream Tea from the Community Centre and other refreshments will be served up in the Pavilion Café. In fact this family fun day is a great opportunity to see why the park has been referred to as “a great day out for all the family, located all in one site” with its joyful flowerbeds, natural wildflower meadow and the pièce de résistance, a glorious boating lake.
