There was also entertainment for visitors. These ranged from fairground rides, a Punch and Judy show much enjoyed by the children and nostalgic parents, to performances by the Burnley Silver Alliance Band.
There were food stalls, face painting, craft stalls, and canoes for you to try your skills.
There was also the opportunity to travel in a narrow boat up and down the canal for an hour. Our grandson loved this especially when he was allowed to steer and then share a Titanic moment in the prow (if these boats call them that).
The weather managed to stay fine and it was a good day out.
The Festival was on for two days and from what I could see as I drove past on the Sunday there were even more boats moored on the canal.
Definitely something for the diary next year.
