Family Fun and Plenty of Colour this Summer
Whitehaven Town Council have a series of family friendly events lined up for this summer.
With a great town centre location, a rejuvenated St Nicholas’ Gardens will play host to hands-on, family fun days like Model Making Competitions on the 31st of May to Paper Airplane Competitions on the 20th of July.
People are free to admire the entries for the outdoor photography exhibition for a week in June. They’ll take pride of place in the gardens and local photographers will compete to win the top prize.
On July 4th, the towns connection with John Paul Jones and American Independence Day will be on show. The Red, White and Blue will fly from shops, pubs and houses as they attempt to impress in the Best Dressed Window Competition. Expect plenty more colour in the harbour as the Best Dressed Boat is up for grabs as too.
Cumbrian Traders will take over the gardens on Friday the 14th of June, where fantastic local food and products will take centre stage. Add a huge range of live entertainment and it’s an event not to be missed.
Whitehaven Mayor Graham Roberts said: “I’m delighted with the plans that the council have come up with for the summer and I hope it will bring lots of people into the town centre to enjoy what is a beautiful and unique town.”
