There was a festival atmosphere at Flamingo Land today as the brand new outdoor entertainment area got its first airing.

It wasn't just thrill-seekers who had their fill, but music-lovers and football fanatics too. Riverside One hosted tribute bands all day as well as showing the World Cup on the giant screen.

Director of Marketing, Sarah Mills said: "Visitors seem to really be enjoying the new Riverside One development. When they want a quick break from the theme park and zoo, there is now an ideal place to watch live entertainment whilst eating outside".
