Photographs on this page by Patrick
THIS year's International Mersey River
Festival was a tremendous success, running over 3 June to 5 June 2016. 3 days of
completely free family fun, all along the World Heritage water front, plus the
amazing warm weather meant this extravaganza was to become the biggest yet.
Playing on the City's historic waterfront were many street performers. There
were the sail boats in the Albert Dock, the Navy displays, International Canoe
Polo Tournament, Jet Ski Stunt Displays, narrow boats, a flying display by Team
Yakovlevs, power boats, cruisers, plus the British Thundercat Racing
Tour. And we even got to see top acts like, Billy Ocean, The Real Thing and the
Grammy Award winning group, Soul II Soul… and many more like them on the Pier
Head's Sound Waves Stage, under the watchful eye of the Liverbird. But it did
not stop at that, the Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas, Liverpool held
festivities on the Church Yard, alongside Merseyside Police. Plus, we even got
to go around with the amazing, newly crowned Miss
Liverpool, and Miss England Finalist, Molly Mcentee-Morris who
not only gave out awards to the Thundercat teams, but also went out on a meet
and greet, welcoming people from all over the world to our amazing City: Along
the way stopping to chat with the many charities and stands as she walked the
around the full event, on both days…
