'Walking' dinosaurs, shows, inflatables, rides and a museum tent are just some of the exciting things to look forward to as 'dino world' takes over Oldham this weekend.

Taking place at High Crompton Park in Shaw today and Sunday (June 17-18), the mega event will see an abundance of prehistoric fun for youngsters to get involved in.

As the name suggests, dinosaurs will roam about the park while stalls and tents will provide some dino-themed entertainment.

Arranged by the company, JK Events, confirmed the line-up activities include dinosaur shows, a dinosaur puppet show, a dinosaur walkabout and a dinosaur trail.

Throughout the park, there will be 'dino selfie points' and an array of children's rides, face painting, inflatables - including 'mega' inflatables - and food and drink stalls.

Over in the nursery and museum tent, there will be hatching dinosaur eggs - meaning visitors can "witness the magic of new life".

Youngsters can also help the keepers feed them and learn fascinating facts about these ancient creatures.

"It's a day of excitement and wonder that's perfect for dinosaur enthusiasts and kids of all ages", the event page reads.

Entry is £3 per person for an all-day access pass to all the entertainment though inflatable attractions are paid for by tokens.

Tickets to the event can be purchased on Eventbrite.
