There was face painting, free snow cones and giant games and children were able to pose for photos with the characters on Monday.

The final Awesome August event is on Monday, August 20, between 11am and 3pm, with jungle animals.

Shoppers can become a jungle explorer with a Safari Chief and go on a trek in search of wild cats and cheeky monkeys.

Children will also be able to take part in a fun jungle craft and take home their own lion mask.
