The children in Holy Cross are learning about canals in preparation for the Eldonian Village Canal Festival.
An Inland Waterways Spectacular!
The Eldonian Village Canal Festival, Liverpool
11th - 12th June 2016
This Festival will be an amazing day out for all the family.

- Children's fun activities,
- Free trip boat

The canalside at Eldonian village will be alive with boats - all decorated with bunting and flowers - making a great picture. There will also be "Shrek" - a delightful boat horse - visiting with his owner who will be delighted to talk to visitors about how a working boat was towed along the waterways, delivering all kinds of cargoes.
This event is IWA's 2016 National Campaign Festival and organisers aim to increase leisure activities on a relatively underused part of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal as well as promote the event in celebration of the bi-centenary of the canal.
Liverpool City Council will also be organising some of the land based entertainment and concessions.
