Christmas is the most magical time of the year. Unless you visited Milton Keynes' Winter Wonderland event on Saturday.
Meeting Father Christmas cost £6 per child. Photos were extra.
Children were given bags of crayons and colouring pencils when they went to see Santa.
The ice rink didn't look up to much. (That's because it's made of plastic sheeting.)
While this ride was being pushed around by hand at one point.
There were two huskies and two reindeer at the Winter Wonderland event.
On Sunday morning the organisers were in a rush to pack up.
Winter Wonderland MK was supposed to help raise money for a local disability charity.
Cancelling it has also meant that Sunday's official welcoming ceremony has been cancelled.
It was due to involve "cheerleaders, circus acts and sea cadets" parading through a local park, while local MP Iain Stewart and the town's deputy mayor looked on as a schoolgirl cut a "celebratory cake".
In an admirably frank move, the website still lists the promised attractions - just with a line struck through them.
Organiser Lorenzo Franco was not picking up his phone this afternoon. But he told the BBC that he was sorry for disappointed customers and is offering refunds.
He also said it was his company's "first event" and the closure was for health and safety reasons due to staff shortages.
We're looking forward to next year.
