The MRF will consist of free activities in and around the waterfront encompassing the Albert Dock and South end of Pier Head. Various vessels including military and tall ships (some of which are open to the public) will be berthed in the docks, water-side activities including jet-ski displays/wakeboarding championships, Thundercat boat racing, regattas, alongside street theatre, aerial displays and food/drink concessions.
