Plenty to amuse on and off water
IT'S not just about the ships. A floating open-air movie screen, trapeze artists, an interactive "sea orchestra" and a host of water-based activities will see the city come alive, on and off the water. Events are taking place each day of the four-day-long free festival, including:
Out of the Blue: Family Zone

From traditional wooden games to World Music acts and street performances, there's lots for all the family to enjoy.

Boards, Bikes, Balls and Beats sum up the inspirational, adrenaline-fuelled, action-packed Kings of Concrete.
