The word “car” was replaced with “boat” as youngsters assembled at the bridge at the Stanley Bridge wharf on Sunday, Aug. 25, when prizes were handed out to fearless jumpers as part of the 17th annual River Days Festival. Jumpers had to be wary of pleasure craft travelling near and underneath the bridge.
Some older adults also took the plunge during the River Days weekend. Click on an image to view all images in a lightbox.
