Plans for Skipton's seventh Waterway Festival are well underway with the theme of this year's event, held over the May Bank Holiday weekend from 3rd to 5th May, being chosen as Skipton Olympics. The festival is organised by a steering group of local people and Pennine Cruisers.
It attracts hundreds of boaters to Yorkshire and last year it was estimated that around 10,000 visitors came to enjoy the stalls and the varied family entertainment which took place on the canal side during the day.
Boaters booked in for the event with be invited to a private event on the Friday evening, the canalside daily entertainment will begin on Saturday and will run from 10.30am until 4.30pm.
A Farmers Market will also be in Coach Street car park on Sunday 4th May, with the illuminated cruise sailing from the outskirts of town to the canal basin arriving at dusk on Sunday.
Anyone who has previously attended will be sent a mooring application for 2008. New applicants for moorings, stalls or those wanting to perform can contact Pennine Cruisers for an Application Form by emailing email@example.com or telephone on 01756 795478
