River Festival 2005
- Photograph above with thanks
THIS year's festival was
another huge success, with tourists flocking in from miles around to
see what has become one of the best events in the North West. The event was full of things to see and do for all ages ranging from flying displays to power boat displays. Even the Liverpool Clipper was in the Albert Dock ready for all to
view. The HydraZorbs went down really well on the Saturday! They were provided by Goodyear and raised funds for the RNLI.
Despite the bad weather
on the Sunday, the sunshine on the Saturday made the numbers
attending far higher than last year's event. Even the
worry that the massive re-building project would put people off
coming and hamper their experience was never reality in the
end. One of the many tourist who came said:-
"I am from London. You could never put on such a friendly
and open event like this in London. This has been an amazing
event, with lots to see for all ages. From air displays to
open boats, even bands and street entertainers. I will be back
her for the Clipper Race later this year. I have never been
before to Liverpool, but as it has been given the title Capital of
Culture I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Now I
know and I will have to ay, I am gob-smacked."
We will let the photographs say the rest...
