The days are getting longer, Easter has been and gone and May is nearly upon us. All of this must mean one thing – it’s nearly summer.

With that in mind we thought we’d put together a list of family friendly activities for all you Bristol residents to get out while the weather is nice.

St Paul’s Carnival

After a two-year absence, one of Bristol’s most iconic events is making a come back this year as St Paul’s Carnival takes to the streets again at the start of July.

The three-day extravaganza features live music, food from every corner of the world and an incredible fireworks display. Celebrating Bristol’s maritime heritage, the festival attracts visitors from across the country, not just the city.
