This weekend’s event is designed to inspire people of all ages to get active, get healthy and get outside.

It is hoped that Rio’s party atmosphere will be reproduced as Park View 4u stages the majority of activities, including archery, BMX, netball, junior yoga and zumba to name just a few.

But other activity sports are being held at a variety of other venues around town, including Lytham Hall and Lytham Windmill and the two-day event opens serenely with sunrise yoga at the windmill, being held both mornings from 6am.

Lytham Sportfest founder Mark Selby says he has been overwhelmed by the support the event has received and hopes it will becomes a regular feature in Lytham’s busy event calendar.

He said: “We have a variety of great festivals in the area, so adding a sporting festival seemed like a natural step. If we can get anyone involved in sport in the local area, we have achieved our aims.”
