Children’s Day at Ripon Racecourse will see the Kids Love the Races roadshow come to the city.
The interactive event aimed at entertaining and engaging children in the sport of horseracing takes place on Monday, August 5, when the racecourse holds a meeting with the first race starting at 2.15pm.
Budding young jockeys can enjoy finding out more about the equine and human stars of the sport, design their own racing silks and take a look at some specialist racing equipment.
There will also be bouncy castles, fair rides, assault courses and slides, face-painting and balloon modelling, and a free ice cream for every child.
– Admission to the races for under-16s is free.
