The Mumbles Jazz festival attracts musicians from around the world and the Navy Days Festival gets bigger every year. The Raft Race is a big event with local community groups, businesses and pubs getting together to race across the bay in ingenious and comical home made rafts. There are too many art fairs and craft markets to mention as well as a monthly farmers market, do not miss the famed lamb burgers cooked on a market stall and served with a mint dressing and a big mushroom in a bun, delicious.
If you want a change of scene there is the land train which connects Mumbles to the Blackpill Lido with a lovely cafe overlooking the paddling and play areas for the children. Futher around the Bay is Swansea itself for shopping as well as museums, art galleries, Wales' premier waterpark the LC and the historic Maritime Quarter.
