London Mayor’s Thames Festival 2009 is here, with a line-up that looks promising for both parents and children.

Tomorrow sees the start of . The riverside from Westminster Bridge to Tower Bridge promises to be jam packed with exciting festival type things for you and your family. Street art, carnivals, choirs, music, and food are just some of the tidbits available. Highlights come in the form of a Harvest Feast on Southwark Bridge (Saturday only), The Thames Beach (where you can hang out down on the sand, eat ice cream, and join in with traditional British beach activities), and finally the Sunday Fireworks Display (starting at 9.45pm).

If your children (and you) need to refuel somewhere a little calmer, then some nice places to go for lunch are Giraffe and Strada (at the Southbank Centre), both of which have good facilities and kids menus. If you fancy a quiet break you could try walking across the bridge to St. James park near Trafalgar Square, where it’s certain to be a bit quieter than by the river.

So far the weather forecast is for cloud but no rain, so fingers crossed…
