Festivals in Keynsham and Priston this weekend

atcThis year’s Keynsham Youth Fest takes place tomorrow (September 21st) in the Memorial Park from noon to 4pm.

The event allows the many youth organisations of Keynsham the chance to come together to show off their skills and talents, raising the awareness of the positive opportunities available for young people to participate in.

Last year there was a parade, above,  through the town as part of the Keynsham Youth Fest.

This year there will be dance and musical performances on the bandstand, sporting organisations will give displays, and Keynsham Town Football Club is providing a giant inflatable football pitch.

There will also be stalls with organisations and youth groups promoting what they offer to young people and BMX and scooter demos and competitions.

Youth Fest is funded by Keynsham Town Council.
