Hundreds of children and their parents gathered on the South Inch to celebrate the right to play.
Playday 2016 is part of a national campaign which involves children and young people getting out and playing at locally organised events.
This year’s theme is “Play Matters” and children were able to enjoy range of activities including bouncy castles, face painting, arts and crafts, baby soft play area and circus skills.
Children from as far afield as Perth and Pitlochry played at the event, which ran from 10am to 3pm on Wednesday.
Organisers said they were pleased with the turnout – which was aided by a burst of sunshine in the afternoon.
Shona O’Conner, of Perth and Kinross Council’s early education and childcare strategy team, said: “We’d had about 800 people visiting even before lunch time.
“it’s a nice event because it allows families to spend time together.
“it does seem to be going quite well – it doesn’t matter if a parent has one child or four it’s all free, which makes a difference to people.
“I am really pleased with how it’s going – it looks busier than last year.”
