Family Funfest was a new event put on by Town Centre Manager Fiona Nicolson from EAC’s Economic Development department to support the town centre by encouraging people to come in for the events, which then in turn encourages them to visit local shops, cafes and restaurants.
“Great fun was had by all at our second Family Funfest, as families enjoyed a fabulous range of fun activities and entertainment as part of a wider programme of summer activities.
Also for the first time in the town centre we had a pop-up “Virtual Reality experience” provided by Utopia Computers and sponsored by Burns Mall. Both kids and adults had a ball trying out this technology whilst the younger kids enjoyed a touch of vintage entertainment at our Punch & Judy show. This was the second of two Family Funfests which provided a wide range of activity and entertainment.”
