In pictures: Clevedon Marine Lake Festival

THOUSANDS of people visited Clevedon’s seafront for the town’s annual Marine Lake Festival.

The Salthouse Fields, Marine Lake and promenade were awash with revellers both young and old during the two-day public event on Saturday and Sunday, organised by the MARLENS group.

People had the chance to try out activities on the lake including zorbing, canoeing and sailing, and a raft race proved a hit with the crowds.

Throughout the weekend a huge range of stalls were set up on the Salthouse Fields as well as games and displays.

A family It’s A Knockout competition proved popular and live music on the main stage kept the party atmosphere going.
