Dragon boat racingThis year there will be 28 teams and each race will be competed by four dragon boats.
Kerry Heffernan of Downham Market Town Council said four boats in each race will make for some really exciting racing and will be great to watch.
So the message from the organising working party is Come on.
Get your team entries in quickly we only have a few team spaces left
The Water Festival is an annual event and is free of charge for spectators who will also find lots to entertain them ashore as well as watching the racing.
Nobody goes hungry with a good selection of food outlets doing a roaring trade.
Lots of stalls, a roundabout, trampoline bouncing and funfair complete the line up.
A complete fun day for all the family and entry is free!
Programmes are available in mid July from LEWKS in Wales Court, Downham Market.
Howard Phillips, Chairman of the Working Party, said we are all volunteers and thoroughly enjoy organising this special day every year.
I should like to thank Downham Market Town Council for their backing without which we could not hold the event.
And special thanks too to Archant for their generous sponsorship, and the Borough of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk too.
