Scarborough Boxing Day Traditions (Harbour Raft Race)

Usually hundreds gather around the Scarborough seafront to enjoy the annual boxing day festivities which have long been a tradition of the town.

Last year’s harbour raft race, in aid of the Fishermen and Firemen Fund, did not fail to entertain the crowds.

The raft race involved the usual festive frolicking between teams – and some of the spectators – who bombarded each other with flour and egg.

From the 20 teams that took part the triumphant winners were the Honolulu Hookers. The team, who all dressed in drag for the event, were proud to admit they also averaged the oldest participating team.
