Thousands of teddy bear enthusiasts descended on Western Springs yesterday to picnic, face paint and smear themselves with ice cream.

The 30th annual Teddy Bears Picnic featured magicians, fairies and dancers on stage to entertain a gaggle of children through the day.

The picturesque lakeside park came to life though a day of entertainment including shows from characters like Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and pirates and a feature performance by Jessie Hillel - runner-up in New Zealand's Got Talent.
