Don't miss Wightona 2013 this September

One of the main reasons why the Isle of Wight remains a popular destination for holidaymakers looking for a staycation is because of the vast range of cheap and family-friendly events constantly being added to its calendar.

Wightona 2013 is no different and is the latest to come to the island, promising to be a fantastic day out for all, whether you're away with the kids and after something different to take them to or are taking a short break from the mainland with your partner.

Motorbike lovers in particular are invited to attend the event, which takes place on September 28th and features displays and exhibitions of bikes and scooters, as well as a bike show where prizes will be dished out.

Even if you're not particularly passionate about motorcycling, you're still guaranteed to have fun, as there'll be live acts performing, plus sideshows and refreshments. The Wightona Facebook page promises "12 hours of music, beer, food and friends", with the day kicking off at 12:00 BST and lasting until midnight - what better way could there be to see out the summer?

There is also the option to pitch up a tent and stay overnight at the event - which is being held at Brighstone Holiday Centre in Newport - so anyone who's hoping to go on a camping holiday is sure to be interested in Wightona. 

What's more, early bird tickets only cost £5 each, a bargain considering the work that is going into making the day as entertaining and exciting for attendees as possible - but prices are subject to change on a daily basis. Money raised will go towards the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and the Isle of Wight Motorcycle Action Group.

While an event dedicated to motorcycling doesn't immediately sound child-friendly, there are bouncy castles available for kids to play on so you can rest assured there'll be something for them to do while you browse the bikes and trikes selection. ADNFCR-3083-ID-801635248-ADNFCR
