Britain's smallest city goes wet as well as wild in July, when its annual celebration of the great outdoors stages its own water-themed games to mark the Olympics, so why not pop along as part of your UK family holiday.

Now in its eighth year, The Really Wild Food and Countryside Festival in St Davids has become renowned for its friendly atmosphere, food and drink, wacky entertainment and hands-on madness for every member of this family.

And as the opening day of the two-day event, on July 27th, coincides with the opening ceremony of the Olympics, the festival will be splashing out with the Really Wild Eaulimpic Games.

Teams will be challenged to take part in a crazy contest to collect as much water as possible to win the coveted Geauld medal.

If you'd like to stay dry but still have fun, then why not try your hand at Bowling with Veg and wellie-wanging, or cheer on the racing pigs and ferrets?

It's all about the festival's theme of championing rural life, said festival founder Julia Horton-Powdrill. "It's all about what goes into the countryside, what comes out of it, and how we can benefit from what nature offers us," she said.

More than 80 exhibitors and producers will be showcasing what Pembrokeshire and Wales does best, whether it's serving up delicious tastes or offering a chance to try traditional rural crafts. A great addition to your UK family holiday.

Chefs - including Anthony Evans and Fraser Christian - will be cooking up a storm with locally-foraged ingredients, while new this year will be the Really Wild Welsh Bake-Off to challenge the more amateur culinary talents.

So if you fancy spending a wild couple of days, head for Festival Fields, Whitesands Road, St Davids between 10am and 5pm on Friday July 27th and Saturday July 28th.
