THIS weekend’s stormy forecast has forced the Town of Cambridge to postpone the second Celebrate City Beach event to Sunday, February 26.

Held to draw people down to the completed $18 million beachfront redevelopment, which includes three restaurants, a new surf club building, beachside promenade, amphitheatre and lookout tower, the event will feature activities for all ages.

The event has been rescheduled from February 12 until February 26 because of inclement weather.

Cambridge Mayor Keri Shannon said about 1000 people turned out last year and they expected almost double the numbers this year.

The sandcastle building competition returns, as well as beach cricket, tennis, a junk musical instrument workshop, kite demonstrations and art activities.

Parents will be be able to relax and enjoy live music by Junkadelic brass band, roving performers from 3pm and Foxrock from 5pm-7pm.

The City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club will also host tours.
