It's not just Brazil which has a carnival atmosphere - festival fever is set to hit Rainford in July!
Visitors can expect a whole host of foodie treats, from a hog-roast to gourmet burgers and even hands-on cookery sessions
for all the family. The under-18s Buzz Bar will be providing a range of drinks and there will be traditional sweets and cakes to enjoy or take home. A lively, artisan market
will be showcasing crafts from across the region.
There will also be live performances from exciting local bands, comedians, contemporary dancers and Rainford High students on the Wish FM
and Rainford Junction Acoustic
stages. Many musical tastes will be catered for from Samba, Ukulele, Brass, Rock, Jazz, Indie and Choir singing.
More unusual attractions include rides on the ever popular Segways, racing in inflatable Zorbs, enjoying stories from Rainford High English students, watching dog displays, metal detecting for buried treasure and getting messy with painting workshops.
