Today and for the rest of the weekend Wexford is celebrating it's long and strong attachment to the sea and boats. It is also celebrating the 50th Anniversary of JFK's visit to Wexford. Activities include National Thundercats Championships, rowing and sailing races, visiting fleet including RNLI lifeboats, customs, navy, the Celtic Mist and Viking boats.

Emergency services demonstrations will include the RNLI and Irish Coast Guard helicopters. So we're all dressing up  and ready to take part in the fun raft races or kayaking and canoeing. There are also lots of children's activities: arts and crafts, kindermusik, scientastic, funfair and much more.

And for those who like their food there is an opportunity to sample the local food produced by Wexford companies in Wexford's largest outdoor food village on Wexford Quay.

And all is free!
