A Royal Day and an Extravaganza!

Well the 25th Victorian Extravaganza here in Llandudno has begun a day early this year as we have an extra Bank Holiday for the Royal Wedding.

The weather is looking good for the weekend so it should be a good one!

There will be a parade of steam vehicles, marching bands, traction engines, people in Victorian dress and much more each day at 12 noon.

The main street in Llandudno is closed to traffic and there will be traditional stalls with old fashioned games such as Hook a Duck and Coconut Shies and also some really old one armed bandits! There are some great old fairground rides including chairoplanes (pictured), ghost train, helter skelters, gallopers and a couple of more modern ones in dodgems and waltzers.

There are various stages where there will be singers, dancers and various other acts performing.

The fun extends onto the promenade where there is usually one of the stages, a helter skelter and of course our stall selling Lifeboat souvenirs! We will be there on Saturday, Sunday and Monday so come and say 'hello' if you are in Llandudno.

We aren't on the promenade today as we are all at home watching the wedding!
