An estimated 5000-plus people came to the Douglas Borough Council-organised event, which was sponsored by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company and supported by 3FM.


Warm and dry weather, combined with a host of free attractions, street food, some 40 car boot stalls, live entertainment, dance displays, family games and open mic sessions attracted families throughout the afternoon and also provided an opportunity for the Mayor to mingle with the crowds…and get up close and personal with ‘Monty’ the python.

Regeneration and Community Committee Chair Councillor Stephen Pitts, who acted as MC for the children’s races, said: ‘The Fun Day was a runaway success and I would like to thank all the Councillors and employees for their hard work, not only on the day, but also during the many weeks of planning the event. Thanks must also go to the many local businesses and organisations for their support. It was always the Council’s intention that this year’s Fun Day would be an exceptional community event and it’s fair to say we more than delivered on that.’
