Canalway Cavalcade Takes Over Little Venice This Weekend

The canals around Little Venice are one of London's urban treasures, mixing picturesque waterways with superior pubs, bars and restaurants. The lock windlass of fun gets ratcheted up a notch this weekend, for the annual Canalway Cavalcade, organised by the Inland Waterways Association. This community festival has been running since 1983, and offers "a boaters’ gathering, a pageant of boats, trade shows and stalls, bands, kids’ activities, competitions, Morris Dancers, a real ale bar, a wide variety of snacks and food". If the weather holds, it sounds like a picture-perfect family day out.

Canalway Cavalcade at Little Venice. Saturday 4 May 10am-6pm; Sunday 5 May 10am-6pm, followed by music at 8pm and a procession of illuminated boats at 9pm; and Monday 6 May 10am-5pm. Entrance is free.
