Never mind the thousands being spent on the `Welcome to the BBC' MediaCityUK events (see here), if you want to know what a really good time is like, head to the Ordsall Community Festival next Saturday for a full day of fun, games and Salford talent.

The day begins with the Ordsall Dog Show at 10:30am  – anyone can enter, just register your dog at 10am – and the categories are Prettiest Pooch, Sit Up and Beg, My Best Friend (kids' dogs), You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks and Fetch. This comp was one of the highlights of last year's Fest!

On the main stage all day are loads of acts including Belly Dancers, St Winifred's, the British Legion Dancers, Company Fierce, the Costa Del Salford DJs and the ever popular Ordsall's Got Talent competition. There's also drumming displays and martial arts displays from Terry's Tigers.

Meanwhile all around Ordsall park will be events and stalls including face painting, street theatre, outdoor fitness sessions, a footy competition for 11 to 16 year olds, a bowling competition and a `multicultural munch with Chef Ray'.

This year's theme is Grow It, Cook It and Eat It with lots of advice on how to do all that, plus a Plant A Plant day in the community garden.

This is one of the top community festivals in Salford – don't miss!!!
