FLEETWOOD Tram Sunday is due to take place on July 15 - and looks set to be a huge success.
Fleetwood Transport Festival, also known as Tram Sunday, is an annual event - a vintage, special interest festival.

This Ffstival takes place on the 3rd Sunday of July each year and is now regarded as one of the major transport festivals in the North of England.

Organisers are hoping for a change in the weather to ensure a bumper crowd flocks to Fleetwood.

Fleetwood Transport Festival takes place throughout the entire length of Fleetwood's main street, and is unique in the fact that Fleetwood has the only original main street electric tramway still running in the British Isles after more than 100 years.

Said a spokesman: "On the day, we have vehicles of all ages and types, and for the public entertainment we have street organs, bands, Morris dancers, street entertainers, buskers, sideshows, trade stands, exhibits, model railway exhibition, Narrow Gauge railway, charity stalls and children's and and adults' fairground rides, including a 19th Century Steam Galloper. There are also rides on a selection of Vintage Trams, which run from Ash Street out to Thornton Gate."
