I jumped in the car and hit the road... my new car doesn't have sat nav but I roughly knew which direction to go in thankfully. The Racecourse was really easy to find though with plenty signposts from the major routes and the parking was well organised too. I've found in the past that events like this can sometimes be a bit stressful in that respect. Just as I walked up to the gate, Laura from Life as an Hourglass also arrived who I had invited to join me. Perfect timing!
Putting green for the kids
Luckily I was wearing my warm jacket as it started to rain :-(
I also bought some Oreo cookie fudge from the Inverness Fudge stand - yum!
There weren't as many kids kicking about as I had imagined, as the event had been advertised as a family fun day. There seemed to be plenty to keep children occupied for a few hours. Inside one of the tents we spotted face painting. There were also a few swings, a bucking bronco, crazy golf & a bouncy castle, plus an intriguing inflatable maze of some sort. I think that my kids, aged 3 and 4.5 years, might have been a bit more difficult to keep entertained as they're a bit young/too small for some of the attractions - one for older kids I reckon. I also doubt they'd have sat through the James Martin demo... just as well I was on my own!
The inflatable maze
There are quite a few upcoming events at Hamilton Park Racecourse over the summer months including Ladies Night on Saturday 2nd August that's worth checking out. Have a peek at their website for more.
Laura and I received complimentary tickets for the event in exchange for an honest review. Opinions, as always, are my own.
