Regular Events:
Saturday
The Saturday road run normally takes in a tour of the World Heritage town of Conwy, via Llanrhos and Deganwy. Further details of the Saturday road run will be available on the Festival Field during the late afternoon.
Sunday
Sunday sees two major events, there is the annual Crosville gathering of buses, coaches and enthusiasts ancient and modern and the Extravaganza street parade. Festival entrants join with walkers in costume, cyclists, marching bands, entertainers and traction engines to circle the town. The spectacle lasts almost an hour.

On Sunday evening the second road run normally takes place around the celebrated Marine Drive for superb coastal views and most unusual photo-opportunites. The half-way stop by the 'Rest and be Thankful' cafe is a transport spectacular in itself. There will be more information on whether the road run takes place on the Festival field.

The Extravaganza street parade around the town is repeated at midday on Monday
