Albert Dock centre point once again for Mersey River Festival

There was a feast of watery action right along our waterfront for the Mersey River Festival 2017. Thousands were in attendance for day one and we even got a little bit of sunshine over our Mersey.

Tall Ships sailed in to the city, joining several military vessels and research ships. The British ThunderCat Racing Tour was back and we seen boats battling it out on the Mersey reaching speeds of up to 65mph.

As well as that jet skiing, fly boarding, canoe polo and wakeboarding displays along with some dry land exhibitions, unarmed combat and weapons displays. The Sea Cadets will performed their field gun window ladder semaphore and club swinging activities.

The Northern Boat Show was back for its third year, and of course plenty of marine themed surprises too, even the mermaids got in on the action.

Watch our highlights and if you missed it you can catch day two on Sunday 25th June from 11-5pm with Liverpool ONE and Home Bargains.
