    Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival 2017

    It’s Sunday night on the 2nd of July 2017 and we have just had the most wonderful weekend at this year’s Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival. We had an absolute blast as a family, the kids loved all the fun activities put on especially for them and we enjoyed the food, drink and snacks on offer everywhere.


    Perfect festival weather

    The weather on Saturday started out a little grey, but by 2 o’clock the sun was out and it shone on the town, the river and the festival for the rest of the day and all day Sunday. At a steady 20-22 degrees throughout the day, it was neither too hot or too cold, it was perfect!

    Saturday evening was the popular fireworks display that lit up the whole town for nearly 15 minutes and left all spectators ‘Ohh’-ing and ‘Ahh’-ing. It was spectacular!

    One thing we’ve once more been reminded this weekend, is that when Stratford-upon-Avon gets together to celebrate, nowhere else do it better! The spirit during this year’s River Festival was happy, friendly and wonderful through and through.

    With happy people and smiles all around, plenty of delicious food and drink to choose from, shopping and entertainment first class, this year’s River Festival was one of the very best we’ve seen.


    A family-friendly game of mini golf

    Now, we don’t need the river festival to be on to enjoy a fun and family-friendly game of mini-golf, as we have Stratford-upon-Avon Mini Golf by the river whenever the weather permits it, but we just had to finish the perfect weekend of celebrations on the “golf course”. As always, we had a super time playing mini golf, great service and a really fun course.


    Thank You, Stratforward

    Stratforward, the organisers of the Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival, have done a fantastic job and I’m sure you’ll join us in thanking them for being awesome event managers and for putting on this, and so many other, events in our wonderful town.

    We’ll be back on the riverbank again next year… see you there!
