LAST weekend saw Liverpool, newly designated European Capital of Culture for 2008, celebrate its annual Mersey River Festival, which is now the UK's biggest free maritime festival. The glorious weather was a great advantage and the event drew vast crowds estimated at more than half a million. Good humour was the order of the day amongst viewers and participants alike. Many bands played, entertainers abounded and of course, ships, boats and barges, of all sorts and sizes, tall and small, played central roles. Events included an exciting Royal Marines display and a stunning fly pass by the RAF, along with the Fleet Air Arm's Swordfish, Newfoundland Water Rescue Dogs, RNLI, Mersey River Rescue and the Historic Diving Society to name just a few who added spice to the proceedings. The whole event provided a wonderful spectacle for all to enjoy and was a great boost to the local economy. Once again this was a prestigious festival, well organised and executed. Congratulations to all concerned.
