This is a great day out, with something for everyone – boat trips, stalls, amusements and featuring the famous cardboard boat race. The Canal Fun Day is an annual event, taking place this year in August. The venue for this great event is Linlithgow Canal Centre.

There will be a variety of stalls in Learmonth Gardens: local and national charities, the Art Club exhibiting their work, a Punch and Judy show for the younger visitors, along with face painting and musical entertainment provided by members of the Linlithgow Folk Festival Association. Short canal boat trips will be available throughout most of the afternoon, along with a free ferry taking visitors from one side of the basin to the other.

There will be a Water Safety demonstration by International Rescue Corps, who will also be providing First Aid and safety boat cover at this event.
