Wet and windy weather failed to put off hundreds of families enjoying a play day in Highbridge.
The 10th Apex Park Play Day, in Marine Drive, saw crowds of people take part in an array of water-based activities including model boating and turbo paddlers.
For those who didn’t wanted to stay dry there was also plenty of fun to be had on dry land, from face-painting and inflatables to wall climbing and paintballing.
A fire crew allowed visitors to have a look inside their engine while those feeling brave enough were able to hold a snake.
The event was put on thanks to a £2,500 donation from Sedgemoor District Council while Burnham and Highbridge Town Council has also contributed a grant of £1,250.
The Burnham Lions, Admiral Blake and Tynte Masonic Lodges also gave money in support of the event.
