Blackpool Civic Week 2012

Civic Day is a national celebration of civic pride. It is a day when communities across the country say "we care about where we live".

In Blackpool we are having a full Civic Week which extends from Saturday June 23rd to Sunday July 1st. Starting with a Street Party in St John's Square and ending with a Scarecrow Festival in the Salisbury Woodland (aka Woodland Gardens) off East Park Drive.

Our full list of events for the week is shown below. We hope you will join us. In 2011 over 2,000 people flooded into St John's Square and there was great music and fun on a great day. In 2012 the weather forced the party indoors but we still had a lot of fun.

Photos from the 2012 Street Party that was held indoors.

A months rain fell on the Friday before the party and the forecast wasn't too good so the event was moved indoors to the Winter Gardens Olympia area.
