During each day, visitors of all ages are encouraged to wear their best unicorn-inspired costumes to join in the fun as they take part in a range of unicorn-themed activities and entertainment, with prizes for the best costumes. Not only can young ones meet and interact with unicorn characters, but they can also enjoy rides on real-life unicorns (well, kinda).
