Families got wet, wild and wacky in more than 20 bouncy castles at the Blast Family Day Out over the weekend.
Blast owner Jim Thomas said he and wife Monica ran the business out of their home in Richmond.
He said the family day was "pretty full on", estimating around 2000 people stopped by on Saturday.
Among the entertainment was zorb balls, mini hot rod jeeps, water slides and paddling pools, and live acts by children's entertainer Kath Bee, dance crew Mad Beat, Fairy Lou and Cranksy the clown kept people on their toes.
