All the fun of Laxey Fair

Roll up, roll up

It's Laxey Fair day!

2018 marks the 47th time the festival has been held, celebrating the village and its strong mining heritage.

Children in traditional dress will lead the parade from the Rose Gardens at 1.30pm, ahead of the official opening ceremony at 2pm.

Manx dancers, bands, stalls and bouncy castles will provide something for everyone throughout the day.

Organiser Andrew Smith says it's still a big event for the local community.
