What's Bedford river festival?

The Bedford River Festival celebrates the completion of a navigable route, by water, through raft races, bands, a road parade, a firework display, and boat shows. Founded in 1978 the event has grown to become the main tourist-attracting event in the town of Bedford, England, attracting more than 350,000 visitors. Usually held over a weekend in July the event also features a sports village, which creates a space for local sports clubs to demonstrate their skills. This event is regarded as being the second biggest free outdoor event in the country.
