East Cowes Fun Day next week

Families heading to the Isle of Wight in the coming days might like to take the time to visit a local attraction in the form of the annual East Cowes Fun Day.

Taking place at the Victorian Recreation Ground on July 13th, the event promises to be an excellent day out for kids young and old, filled with attractions to educate, entertain and get pulses racing.

Attractions on the day will include a live performance by Samba band, Morris Dancing, the Zumba Fitness Dancers and a live rendition from the Corps of Drums of the TS Osborne Sea Cadets.

Marquees will be set up throughout the grounds, with exhibitors set to include Friends of East Cowes, Vectis Road Allotments, Brownies, Scouts, the Isle of Wight Ranger Cadets, Spectrum Housing, IW & Hants Air Ambulance Service, RNLI, East Cowes Heritage Centre and English Heritage.

In addition, kids can enjoy a bouncy castle, slide and various other attractions aimed at younger visitors.

A range of static displays will also be set up to wow the crowds, including exhibits from the Vintage Car Club and the East Cowes Safer Neighbourhood Team.

Guests wishing to brush up on their camping and survival skills are also in for a treat, as the Ranger Cadets will be putting on a number of demonstrations throughout the day.

Refreshment stalls will also be on hand to help visitors stave off their hunger and thirst throughout the day, with burgers, sandwiches, ice creams, team coffee, soft drinks and even a hog roast all taking place at the nearby Pavilion.

Free to head along to, the fun day has been organised to support a number of good causes in the local community, including raising funds for the Pavilion, the IW Playing Fields and the Friends of East Cowes.

Here's hoping for sunny weather to really make the day go with a bang, with the gates to the fun day opening from 10:00 BST.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801610722-ADNFCR
