20th July 2016
Things to do this Summer holidays near Moss Wood Caravan Park
It’s finally here! That time of year parents love or dread – The Summer Holidays. The question that always comes first is “What to do?”. Well, we have done some of the running around for you and have a few ideas with events going on around Moss Wood this weekend.
Running over the whole weekend, the Wyre Festival is a three day music festival which runs at Wyreside Lakes. The cost is just £10 per adult and £5 per child. The acts performing include local band Sold to the Sky, Trap 2, The Fuse and guitarist Paul Connor.
What to do – Saturday
Fleetwood is hosting a fun day at Memorial Park from 11am to 3pm. There will be a wide range of activities including street theatre, circus artists, animal displays, and puppets for the kids! You can also get their faces painted and give them a play on the bouncy castle. For the more mature, there will be stalls for arts and crafts, and cakes. Free entry.
Preston plays host to two events on Saturday which might take your fancy. The Flag Market in the city centre will be holding the Feast for Peace from noon to 4pm, celebrating the city’s cultural diversity. Chefs will be cooking a wide variety of food using food which otherwise would have gone to waste. There will also be music and dancing from all different groups and cultures living in Preston. Free, but donations encouraged.
Just down the road from the Feast, running from noon until 6pm, will be the Mad Hatter’s Herbal Tea Party – yes, you read that right! A fun day of music, theatre and fitness will be running at the beautiful Avenham and Miller Parks. Contemporary Magical Urban Circus, Cirque Du Alice, will be performing throughout the day, while there will be other activities like face painting, a bouncy castle and hook-a-duck running. Free entry, but donations can be made to Derian House Children’s Hospice.
What to do – Sunday
Sunday will see PedalFest come to Preston. Starting at Avenham and Miller Parks, the cycling challenge will feature two routes starting between 8am and 10am. The shorter of the routes will be 59km, while the more difficult route will be a whopping 101km. If you don’t feel up to the biking, there will be family activities all day at the park, including a cycling pump track, ‘smoothie bikes’ (what it sounds like!) and face painting.
