Aquafest 2018!

This year’s Aquafest, to be held on Sunday 1st July,  will be the 40th anniversary of the event.  The organisers, the Rotary clubs of Ely,  have been working hard to make this years’ event even better than usual.   All the usual favourites including the fairground rides, catering outlets, arena events and charity and commercial stalls will be present but this year we are going to start the entertainment at 10:30 to make this a whole-day event. Among the early events will be an MG vintage car display, children’s races and a stand-up Paddle Boarding demonstration on the river.  The raft races will continue to be the main feature and the Wake Board demo proved so popular last year that they have arranged for them to come again.

One really special extra feature they have arranged is a flypast by a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Hurricane of WWII vintage.

The current schedule is below, but do check the website and Facebook for updates and changes as we approach the day
