Boaters evening events include a barbecue (Friday) and a quiz (Saturday).
A vintage bus will take visitors to the city centre, where other events will be taking place along the waterfront, including Dragon Boat races.

29-30 June Foxton Locks Festival
Look out for the Viking re-enactment group clashing swords and shields; the real ale tent; live music (including late into the evening on the Saturday). You could always help some weary crews making their way up and down the challenging Foxtron Locks flight, or sit and watch them as you relax in one of the canal-side pubs or cafe.
All proceeds from the festival support the trust restoring the Inclined Plane boat lift. There will be working models, and experts on hand to tell you more.
