In line with the apocalyptical theme, there were dinosaurs including Spike the spinosaurus, Ronnie the T-Rex, Rita the Utah raptor and baby hatchlings and dinosaurs.

There were also classic cars, an artisan market, live acts, a steam engine and a Jurassic Ball with a menu featuring prehistoric food such as Tyrannosaurus stew and rubble rocks and Pterodactylus with new potatoes and salad.Saturday’s activities including tea pot racing were followed by a Steampunk parade on the promenade, which gave everyone a chance to show off their Steampunk costumes en masse. Squishy the steel tarantula scared the crowds.
