More than 3,000 people took part in the seventh annual festival, organised by the Pontefract Lioness Club on Saturday, October 20.

Karen Heywood, Lioness club president and festival coordinator, said: “It was absolutely brilliant, magic is the only word I can use to describe it. The whole thing was like a magical fairyland, it’s beautiful.

“The creativity from the public is fantastic, it really is. They invest a lot of time and effort into their creations.”
