At Llys Y Fran Country Park there is a fantastic charity event which gets bigger and better each year. It is of course the dragon boat races across the reservoir, these are traditional boats with a drummer at the helm pounding out the rhythmical rowing motion to help power the boats along. It's a fun family weekend with bouncy castle, childrens magician and disco, there's a beer tent for the adults and tasty BBQ foods using fresh Pembrokeshire produce. You can bring along your own picnic and sit on the grassy banks overlooking the reservoir.
Carew Castle, is located alongside a 23 acre millpond and has experienced years of history spanning 2,000 years.
