Shrove Tuesday Skipping Day at Scarborough South Bay
Children's Activity Event, Tue 28 Feb 2017
Experience the unique celebration of Shrove Tuesday in Scarborough, when the entire town turns out to skip – yes, you read that right, skip!
Young and old, skipping ropes flying, right along the seafront, which is closed to traffic for the afternoon. No one’s quite clear why it happens, but one thing’s for sure – you won’t see anything like it anywhere else!
