Take advantage of free admission to the family fun-filled day at the Blackpool Tower Festival. Admire all the costumes and competitors vying to become Blackpool’s official mascot. The Tower Festival Headland comes to life with an outdoor mascot Olympics where Blackpool's favourite costume characters battle to win the mascot competition. Blackpool Champion Mascot 2013 is not an easy title to win The Blackpool Carn Brae Hotel is pleased to give notice that Friday August 2, 2013 is the date set for the games to begin. Last year, Jungle Jim won the title with a stunning display, in a series of disciplines only the finest athlete mascots can achieve. Usain Bolt might dominate track and field, but who will prove to be Blackpool’s fittest mascot? In the qualifying rounds, games include musical chairs, with some crowd participation, the egg and spoon race, and a bean bag race. The final championship round of the games involves a tricky obstacle course. The top three round winners navigate a truly comical race, involving a bit of falling down, and a lot of laughter.
