HYDE went Jurassic as a Dino Day was held in the covered shopping mall to the delight of youngsters.
They were mesmerised by giant dinosaurs and were also able to take part in a dino dig and search for dinosaur bones.
Children and their parents queued to take part in the dig and they were provided with camouflage coloured hard hats similar to those worn by explorers.
The Dino Day was presented by Hyde Market in partnership with Hyde Town Team and the Clarendon Centre.
There were also activities in the outdoor market including the Salvation Army Band giving a performance.
