Northam community invited to Avon Descent celebrations

NORTHAM invites visitors to the banks of the Avon River to join the launch of the much-|celebrated white water descent to Bayswater.

Competitors are hopeful reasonable downpours will guarantee an exciting event of action on the water from power dinghy racers and paddle craft in solo, double and team events.

The Northam Festival opens at 4pm on August 4 with a weekend of fireworks, rides, games and a street parade.

Along with a fanfare of family attractions there will be street food and market stalls.

Check the Visit Northam Facebook page nearer the event.
