Dewsbury on sea
We all like to be beside the seaside – but hours in a hot car with a back seat playlist of ‘I’m bored’ and ‘are we there yet’ (that many games of I-spy can keep quiet), can take the sweetness off the much-anticipated ice cream.
Never fear, all the fun of the beach will be in the centre of Dewsbury on 29 August 2015 from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Whilst everyone else is stuck behind miles of traffic, you could be sat in a deck chair or beach hut and enjoying a wide range of activities for all the family:
Forget boring selfies – ‘on sea-ers’ can get the family together for some unique photo opportunities including a Giant Deck Chair and Peep Board.
And, everyone is sure to be entertained by Gawthorpe Junior brass band (12.30pm – 1.00pm), and some wacky street performers.
Kids will have a great time too; with fun fair rides, a climbing wall, games and sports, donkey rides and face painting
If you need a rest after all that activity can enjoy a traditional seaside punch and Judy show and marvel at the street art.
There will also be the chance to try out the town centre heritage open top bus tour. Your chance to hear lots of interesting info about the town’s history and buildings. The tours run at half hour intervals from 10.30am to 4pm (with a short break from 12.30-1.30pm). They will start and finish at the Long Causeway / Crackenedge lane bus stop (at the rear of Subway).
Throughout the day, Pulse Radio Roadshow will be creating a summery party atmosphere and cyclists can even pedal down and Pennine Cycle’s Dr Bike will give their bike an MOT.
With all that going on there is no reason not to flip flop the family down to Dewsbury on sea for a great day out.
