Angel Canal FestivalThe annual one-day Angel Canal Festival is based around the City Road Lock on the peaceful Regent's Canal in Islington and features all sorts of attractions and events for the whole family. Attractions include a children's fun fair, boat trips, regatta, live music, street theatre and a boat rally. With 80 stalls and gazebos arranged along the towpath, there's plenty to choose from - expect to find stalls selling anything from crafts, books, jewellery, food and drink. As well as local businesses, there are a variety of local and national charities on site to raise awareness for their respective causes and to provide entertainment. The festival will be opened, as it is each year, by the Major of Islington, who arrives by boat from the London Canal Museum and gives a welcome speech before starting the Bell-Boat Race in the City Road Basin. Summer may be winding down but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a family day out by the canal.
