 The 2010 River Festival will continue to build on the previous successes and will be a colourful event of live entertainment, river events, carnival parade, funfair and fete with a wide selection of trade, catering and charity stalls. In the past, activities have ranged from raft races and road carnival parade to performances from live bands and firework display. Attracting in excess of 300,000 spectators the Bedford River Festival is free, and offers numerous opportunities to participate in, or just to relax and enjoy a vast array of activities and entertainment. This year there will be a fly past from one of the last remaining Lancaster Bombers On Saturday and on Sunday a fly past from a Dakota.

  Festival Parade

 The parade starts on De Parys Avenue. Be it a decorated vehicle, band or on foot help us launch the   2010 Festival as well as collecting money for local charities. The parade generally begins on De Pary’s Avenue, working its way down through the High Street, winding around St Paul’s Square and its final destination, The Embankment.

The traditional opening of the Festival, the Parade is a great fun packed way to Start Bedford’sFamily Fun Weekend event.    

 Raft Races

 Build your own raft and enter a team to race down the river and support local charities. This is always a highlight of the festival and it is always interesting to see how many rafts cross the finish line!
