Funtasia to take place this weekend

The Funtasia Festival could prove an exciting attraction for island visitors this weekend, offering an array of delights to keep visitors entertained.

Taking place at Los Altos Park in Sandown on Sunday (July 28th), the one-day spectacular will see a selection of live bands performing to the expectant crowds, as well as numerous fun activities to keep the kids happy.

Groups that will be taking to the stage on the day include The Ohmz, This Way Up, Yours and Mine, The Bear Social, Waves, Cherishport, Duveaux and Platform One.

In addition, two tents are to be set up for kids activities and adult entertainment specifically.

Children will be treated to the Randini Magic Punch & Judy show, face painting, Wendy the Witch, an exhibition of circus skills with Ryre Extreme and also a number of stories from Jules Marriner.

Meanwhile, mums and dads can head to the adults' tent, where they will be able to enjoy the Blood Stone Morris Dancers, Haven Falconry, street crews Starlight Boutique and Dynamix, as well as the Pompey in the Community Drills display.

Organised in support of Daisy Chains IW, the Funtasia Festival aims to offer something for everyone, with many vintage amusements also available, such as a Ferris wheel, merry-go-round, coconut shy, candyfloss stalls, bouncy castle and bumper carts.

In addition, a selection of handmade refreshments and delicious treats will be available for festivalgoers, while a market will also be set up to showcase the many local delicacies of the Isle of Wight and Sandown in particular.

The venue will open from 11:00 to 19:00 BST and entry will cost £5 for adults, £4 for teens aged 12 to 17 and £3 for children under 12. Kids less than three years old will be able to get in at no cost.
