Fun at the Seaside on Summer Holidays in Dorset at Rockley Park and Seaview Holiday Parks

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 25, 2011) - This summer there is plenty of fantastic seaside events happening on the beautiful coastline of Dorset. With so much going on, a Haven family holiday is the perfect way to experience it all at one of their Holiday Parks in Dorset, which include Rockley Park and Seaview.

Rockley Park Holiday Park and Seaview Holiday Park are both ideally located within close reach to the harbour town of Weymouth. Throughout August, families of all ages will enjoy the Summer Fireworks and Entertainment at Weymouth Bay. Here you can enjoy dazzling fireworks by the seafront followed by a great evening of entertainment.

Also happening in Weymouth this summer is the BHF Weymouth Bay Swim. This invigorating one mile swim starts at the Weymouth Pavilion on the 7th August to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, perfect for if you love getting active on your holiday and helping a good cause too – plus all participants get a free swimming hat to make sure you're ready to hit the waves.

Another great event happening this summer on Dorset's famous Jurassic coast is the RNLI Raft Race at West Bay in Bridport. Families are invited to build their own raft and paddle up the River Brit on the 28th July. You can also watch from the sidelines to view the best decorated rafts as they float – or sink – down the river.

Families enjoying holidays in Dorset will also love the colourful Swanage Regatta and Carnival which runs from 30th July to 6th August. Children will watch in awe as marching bands and dancers parade down the seafront in vibrant fancy dress outfits. There will be a great selection of music from Rock 'n' Roll to Pop to get everyone tapping their feet.

A spokesperson for Haven said: "Both Rockley and Seaview Holiday Parks are perfectly located for exploring Dorset to experience the fantastic range of great summer events. After a busy day by the seaside, there is also a whole host of great entertainment and activities back at the holiday parks including shows and music acts that the whole family will love."
