A STUNNING array of activities both on and offshore will be on offer at the Sea Festival.

Run by Harwich and Dovercourt Rotary Club, Harwich RNLI and the Harwich Harbour Board, the organisers have gone the extra mile to ensure the event is as big a hit as always.

Among the attractions on the water will be a display by a fire fighting tug, regatta racing and duck racing.

There will also be a spectacular display by the awe-inspiring Sea King helicopter which will swoop down and show the assembled crowds what goes into a rescue mission.

For those who prefer dry land, dozens of stallholders from local charities and organisations will be lined up on Harwich Quay for visitors to peruse.

There will also be miniature golf, a lobster stand and an incredibly array of vintage Rolls Royces to marvel at.

A variety of Harwich's most famous attractions including the Trinity House Bouyard, the LV18 and the Electric Palace will be open for guided tours to further explore the historic town.

Festivities will begin at approximately 11am on Sunday.
