It was a sad day in the welovebearwood household when we found out that the Lightwoods Park May Day Festival was cancelled due to the bad weather. Boo! Hiss! We've never been fans of the rain but unfortunately the organisers had no choice.
Hooray for some good news though...the event’s now going to be taking place on Sunday 10th June and if we keep having this glorious sunshine it's going to be a fantastic day.
It all kicks off at 11am with Colin Hall's Gypsy Blood (we do love him!) performing on the bandstand and the fun won't stop until it's teatime.
There's going to be a BMX skateboard and scooter competition in the skate park, Sandwell's Strongest Man pumping his iron on the bowling green, a live music stage, dancing and brass bands in the bandstand, stalls, fairground and amusements for the kids. Wow! We told you won't want to go home!
All this for FREE....it's no wonder more than 10,000 people came last year!
