Heavy rain did not deter the youngsters from taking part in the event in Burnley's Towneley Park.

Each child who took part was presented with a finishers' medal.

Hosted by the Mayor of Burnley Coun. Mark Townsend and his wife and Mayoress, Kerry, there were sweet treat rewards for the youngsters and also face painting.
