Thousands of people basked in the glorious sunshine as the Shrewsbury River Festival returned to the banks of the Severn. Around 7,000 visitors flocked to The Quarry for the pirate-themed extravaganza. A range of family-friendly events took place and visitors arrived in their fancy dress with a Fancy Dress Competition for the Best Dressed Young Pirates.

   Last year we lost Morris Lubricants' raft race, but we are proud to


announce that it's back - with a one-hour raft building workshop (ensuring that many raft racers on the untested rafts needed to learn

to swim well in advance), a duck

race, coracle demonstrations, live music and other entertainment, workshops and local craft & food

stalls from all over the county. The Quarry Park was an amazing spectacle, and river users joining in with the landlubbers on the banks.
