Riverfest to return to Isle of Wight

People taking Isle of Wight holidays in the next two weeks may be able to plan their trip to coincide with the return of Riverfest.

The event will be held on May 15th to celebrate the historic Medina River, as well as its associated wildlife and heritage.

Ray Harrington-Vail of the Footprint Trust said: "This year's event will have a greater diversity of stalls and activities than in previous years.

"We are hoping to make Riverfest a great annual event - small, fun and informative."

The Isle of Wight Council has given permission for the event to take place on Newport's famous quay.

Attractions on offer at Riverfest for people on Isle of Wight holidays include Victorian funfair stalls, local food and crafts and a live woodwork demonstration.

If people taking Isle of Wight holidays choose to stay in Newport during their stay on the island, they can join a guided Ghost Walk in the town or visit the Museum of Island History. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19750913-ADNFCR
