HUNDREDS of people enjoyed balloon modelling, face painting and funfair rides at Hatfield town centre's circus day.
Children and parents learned to spin plates, juggle, ride unicycles and walk on stilts, at the event in White Lion Square.
As well as the circus workshop, students from the University of Hertfordshire drew audiences with an exhibition of design ideas for three subways around Hatfield town centre.
Deputy mayor Kim Langley was at the borough council-organised event.
She said: "It was great to see such an enthusiastic crowd; everyone who was there enjoyed the event all day and had a lot of fun.
"Hatfield town centre really benefits from events like this and I hope future events are as well supported as this one."

Town centre manager Nicola Kane said: "The event went extremely well.
"The students at the university have been working with the county council to develop future ideas for subways in Hatfield town centre.
"They wanted the opportunity to display them and they asked if they could come.
She added: "I know the county [council] is hoping to do something with them in the future.
"It raised quite a lot of interest.
