A FUN day out for family and friends is guaranteed at tomorrow's (Saturday) Fisherrow Harbour Festival, say organisers.

The event will “celebrate the local community and showcase the stunning seaside surroundings” with a variety of land, water-based and seafront activities on offer.

A full programme of activities, including live music, dance, magic and a raft race, is planned 1-5pm against the picturesque backdrop of Fisherrow Harbour.

The event is organised by Fisherrow Harbour & Seafront Association and Fisherrow Waterfront Group. Stuart Rillie, chairman of Fisherrow Harbour Festival committee, said: “We’ve been delighted with the enthusiasm and support for the festival from local businesses, entertainers, craft creators and the community. We now have a packed programme of entertainment on our main stage and second stage, an array of shops and stalls and activities on the waterfront.

“Returning this year is our famous raft race which I’ll be taking part in. I can’t wait to see the rafts and costumes competitors have put together. Let the best team triumph.”

Taking to the main stage during the afternoon are Joe Madden, Trippy Takka, Pocket Collective, The Who tribute Who’s Better Who’s Best and a drill demonstration by Musselburgh Sea Cadets & Royal Marine Cadets.

Appearing on the second stage and beachfront are St David’s Brass Band, Clark Community Choir, LCDC dance show, a magic show and ukulele band.

Spectators can also cheer on their favourite teams in the raft race which has been revived this year.

There is a market with local arts and crafts, baking and community groups.

Also in attendance will be the emergency services, East Coast Buses and East Coast FM.

Ice cream and pizzas will keep the hunger pangs at bay. There will be children’s rides and a treasure hunt.
