Looking to unleash your creative side? Like to get a bit competitive? The Deepings Raft Race 2019 will take place on Sunday August 4 and it’s time to enter!
Over 40 rafts, designed and decorated to this year’s theme ‘Mardi Gras / Carnival’ will race up the River Welland from Bridge Street, Deeping St James to Market Deeping.
It’s fantastic fun to participate in but also to watch with plenty of water splashed between rafts and spectators. There’ll be fancy dress galore and streets packed with all kind of stalls, food and drink outlets – including a bar in a double decker London bus – a fun fair, marching band, mini rafts for the younger children to enter and much more.
It’s free for spectators and only a small fee to enter a raft – with the proceeds going to charity.
Raft teams can be from two to eight people, so come on, enter and get building!
