Children's wellie wanging competition where we will be on the look-out for who can chuck their wellie the furthest !
Rock the Catwalk - Judges will be looking for the top Festival outfit so participants need to be creative, funky and quirky if they want to win a fabulous Glamping weekend for two at Coastal Cabins nestled in between the breathtaking North Devon Coast and the pretty village of Hartland.
Tug of War contest with a twist as contestants will be required to tug the rope in wellies. There will be no hob-nailed boots, high heels or sneaky spikes to keep teams grounded and the soles of the wellies will go through a rigorous checking procedure prior to each tug.
Bedazzle the Wellie Parade judges who will be looking for wellie boots that combine fun, innovation and quirkiness. Entrants can decorate their wellies with fabric, paint their favourite scenes or do whatever they need to do to turn their wellie boots in something out of this world.
