Brigg will see big May bank holiday weekend crowds tomorrow (Saturday, May 27).
The town centre's monthly farmers' market and adjoining general market will offer produce and much more to eager shoppers from 9am.
In addition, fun for all the family will be on offer at the Ancholme River Festival.
Visit the Market Place from 10am to view what's on offer at various locations.
Among those involved with the festival are the Ancholme River Trust, Glanford Boat Club and Ancholme Rowing Club.
People can try canoeing, fishing, cycling and other events.
But the highlight for many will be a rare opportunity to take a boat ride on the River Ancholme.
A jetty has recently been constructed near the car park behind the B&M store.
This can be reached by using the riverside towpath/Ancholme Valley Way path.
A craft will take people to Glanford Boat Club, on Island Carr, where there's a fun weekend on Saturday and Sunday.
Attractions include dodgems, bouncy castle, runaway train and slide. Plus refreshments.
The Ancholme River Trust informs Saturday visitors to Brigg that the festival is free and so is the car parking!
Here's hoping for hot weather and a big turn-out for the festival and the market.
