Airedale Centre manager Steve Seymour joins in the Wild West fun with Charli Johnson, of Bonkas Entertainment
Children were enthralled by juggling and balancing as part of a lively Wild West show in Keighley’s Airedale Shopping Centre.
Families enjoyed the fun in the Greggs dining area, thanks to the efforts of a five-strong team of performers from Worcestershire.
The entertainment also included music, balloon modelling and native American Indian face painting.
Youngsters could have their photos taken for free in front of a Wild West themed backdrop - complete with mini teepees.
Elaine Johnson, leader of the Bonkers performance company, said she and her colleagues were making a return visit to Keighley, following a successful Alice in Wonderland show at the Airedale Centre in June.
Exley Head resident Susie Myers, mother of four-year-old Rebecca and seven-year-old Donovan, said: “The children have loved it. The performing sheriff was brilliant. It’s not everyday the children get to see something like this in town so it was well worth coming along.”
There was also line dancing staged by local group Owzitstart.
