And don’t forget the Great Grimsby 10K Race on the Sunday if you fancy getting your running shoes on!
Armed Forces weekend will be back with a bang on the last weekend in June. With the return of the Cleethorpes Carnival on the Friday, it will be a great weekend in the resort.
Mid July will see the return of the Summer Steam gala at Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, and live music will rock the Kingsway Kiosk in Cleethorpes throughout August.
Festival of the Sea will return to Grimsby Town Centre in Mid July – with free entertainment for all ages on the bill, it’s a chance for everyone to learn a bit more about the town’s history.
Meridian Showground will host firm favourites, Pop Live on 17 June and the Gathering Festival on 18 June. Meanwhile, the Scooter Rally returns in early July, Cleethorpes and Grimsby Pride on 23 July, and Outdoor cinema events and the fair in August.
