CHIL­DREN are be­ing asked to dress as dragons and princesses for the South­port Food and Drink Fes­ti­val this week­end.

The event will be re­turn­ing for the 12th year, and will take place from June 1 to 3 at Vic­to­ria Park.

In ad­di­tion to the vast amount of food and drink on of­fer, there will also be a “chil­dren’s fes­ti­val” cor­ner.

This year, it has a theme of cas­tles - for ex­am­ple, knights, princesses and dragons - and young ones are en­cour­aged to go along in fancy dress.

There will also be a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer for the chil­dren, in­clud­ing face paint­ing, bouncy cas­tles and slides.

The event, which is or­gan­ised by Sefton coun­cil, is free to en­ter and is ex­pected to be big­ger and bet­ter for 2018 as it has more stall hold­ers lined up than ever.

There will also be live mu­sic suit­able for peo­ple of all ages.

Sefton Coun­cil tourism of­fi­cer Joanne Dwyer said: “The Food and Drink Fes­ti­val has be­come a cal­en­dar event, and peo­ple tend to head down in groups and make a day of it. It is a great op­por­tu­nity for a fam­ily day out, to en­joy good food and drink and re­lax.

“There is chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment, plenty of food and drink to work your way through, all we ask is that you please bring the sun­shine.”
