From Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland to Mary Poppins and Batman, Oswestry’s parents have excelled themselves

Hundreds of children have been dressing up as their favourite book characters for schools, nurseries and playgroups – and even the teachers have been joining in the fun.

Oswestry’s parents have excelled themselves for the event, which is this year celebrating its 22nd anniversary.

We asked you to share your pictures with us and they’ve been coming in thick and fast.

Check to see if your little ones have made it into our gallery. If they haven’t appeared yet then don’t worry, we’ll keep adding to it as the day goes on.

You can send us photos via our Oswestry Life Facebook page, or by emailing:
