Fun for all the family at the Union Canal with this free event
Now in its fifth year, the Edinburgh Canal Festival and Raft Race takes place on Saturday 9th July 2011.
This year’s event will include the fun-filled raft race, free boat trips, canoe displays and taster sessions, a ‘water walker’ and a whole lot more.
There will be live music, activities for the kids and a display of model boats, all taking place around the canal basin at Edinburgh Quay.
The official opening will be at 12 noon with the raft races expected to finish around 4.30pm.
There’s still time to get involved – if you’d like to enter a raft in the race, contact email@example.com or to have a stall on the day, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For other chances to be involved, contact Pat on 0131 453 4617.
The festival is sponsored by British Waterways and the City of Edinburgh Council, and is co-ordinated by Re-Union Canal Boats.
