The second annual Dive Fest is to be held at Pentewan Sands Holiday Park over the weekend of 30th April to 3rd May. The idea is that divers from all over the UK get together for a huge party, complete with live music, food, events and equipment and travel stalls. The first such event took place in May 2009 and was a massive success, with more than 1,000 divers attending.
During the festival, images from the British Underwater Image Festival will be on display, and the awards ceremony for the competition will take place on Sunday. In addition, Dive Fest will host a splash in competition, with prizes for the best images taken on that day.
Other events include talks from Sea Shepherd and the Sharks Trust, live bands, curry nights, and RIB or hard boat diving throughout the weekend.
