Come and See On The Water at the Mayor's Thames Festival
Published on 6/9/2012
This weekend On The Water, the British Marine Federation’s (BMF) campaign to get more people into boating, will be celebrating the end of an incredible British summer of sport at the Lord Mayor’s Thames Festival on 8 & 9 September 2012.
London’s free end-of-summer Festival coincides with the closing weekend of the London 2012 Paralympic Games and precedes the Olympic victory parade through central London on Mon 10 September.
Over 800,000 people will take part in this celebration of London and the iconic River Thames that lies at its heart. The Festival stretches all the way from the London Eye to Tower Bridge, where On The Water has a stand outside Boris’ office.
Festival go-er’s will be invited to have a go on the kayak simulator or challenge them to the 200m kayak challenge as well as promoting members and provide advice on how to go boating and watersports.
