DUNMOW'S youth festival attracted more than 1000 youngsters to its event this year, which kicked off at noon on Saturday.
Crowds were kept entertained by six local bands and disc jockeys, a local dance group, climbing wall, monster-box bus and an inflatable speed goal machine.
Also proving very popular was a five-a-side football match, organised by the community sports centre's outreach workers, in which 11 teams took part.
Gaynor Bradley, Uttlesford District Council's leisure manager said: "It was a very pleasant and relaxed afternoon. Thanks to the extensive support we got for the event it all ran very smoothly.
