Fisherrow Harbour Festival returns this weekend

FISHERROW Harbour Festival is back in East Lothian tomorrow.

Highlights will include an RNLI lifeboat water rescue display, a visit from two heritage fishing boats from the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther, as well as vehicles from the emergency services, including a boat, quad bikes, and a fire engine.

Festivalgoers will also get the opportunity to enjoy a vintage train, treasure hunt, children’s rides, and pop up stalls, plus a variety of activities on and around the water.

The festival is organised by The Fisherrow & Harbour Seafront Association, which was launched in 2018.

The association is working with East Lothian Council to improve the harbour and seafront in Musselburgh through a series of ongoing fundraising events and voluntary activities.

David Wilkie, chair of the association, said: “After a two-year break due to the pandemic, we’re really excited to be able to announce the line-up for this year’s festival.

“People from across Edinburgh and the Lothians can look forward to an exciting programme of free family and dog-friendly activities and entertainment at Fisherrow Harbour on the outskirts of Edinburgh from 12pm to 4pm.

“To support our ambitious plans to develop a seaside resort with fantastic water-based and seafront activities at Musselburgh seafront, we hope to help raise funds to support the local community as part of our events programme in 2022.”
