Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival recommended to Isle of Wight tourists

The Isle of Wight Council has recommended that people bookings trips to the island for this summer attend Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival during their stay.

According to the local authority, the event, which this year is scheduled to take place in the town from June 3rd to 5th, is one of the most popular of the island's calendar.

It noted that the theme for the 2011 Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival is Around the World, which means those on Isle of Wight holidays will be able to try out a range of foods and activities from all over the planet during their time at the event.

"There will be continental market stalls, plus a variety of styles of music and singing, art/craft and food stalls, a beer tent [and] a Big Boy's toys field," the council said.

Veteran and classic vehicles are to be a major draw at the festival, while kids will also be entertained by their own fun fair.

Street entertainers such as magicians will also be in attendance at the event.
