event will take place from 2pm-6pm with a parade along the town's
beach, which is pictured here last year.
will be followed by an afternoon of entertainment and stalls on
the seafront lawns for young people and their families.
Smith, the organiser, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We're hoping
for as many groups involved with youth activities to take part
in this event and show the great things on offer for the younger
members of Burnham and Highbridge."
"For the first time last year the parade took place on the
beach, giving a wonderful photo opportunity from The Esplanade.
Without the encumbrance of the traffic problems, the parade became
a very relaxed and fun event with music and dancing."
Fun Day is organised by Abbi Fear, this year's Carnival Queen,
which will take place on the green by the Esplanade next to the
rescue centre where there will be a rolling programme of entertainment
starting with the arrival of the Parade. There will follow a display
or dancing and singing, including The Singing Children of Africa.
added: "In addition there will be a craft fair on The Esplanade
and room for all sorts of stalls for charities, food and fun and
games beyond the display area. This is an opportunity for you
to put up a stand to talk to people about what your group does
and recruit members. You are welcome to raise funding for your
group with a tombola or other activity on the stand."
added: "I have chosen 'Somerset Time for Youth' as my charity
for the Youth Day because I am member of this group and they do
amazing work for people with learning difficulties. Funds raised
during the day will go to this very worthwhile local charity."
