“This year is extra special for the club and we will mark the anniversary with the unveiling of a commemorative plaque outside the Engine House – former home to the old steam crane that now provides a dramatic entrance to Marshalls Yard celebrating the history of this once internationally renowned hub of world class engineering.”

Families can also expect to enjoy free face painting, a scavenger hunt, live music and a gigantic 35ft long inflatable tractor.

Caldero Lounge will also be hosting free, themed, craft workshops throughout the day.

And dads can really treat themselves to either the perfect beer or IPA served up by Grimsby’s famous Dock Beers accompanied by either a delicious loaded hot dog from Kaya’s Kitchen hot dog stand or a refreshing cold whipped ice cream from Sasha’s Ice-cream.

The event will finish with the club’s traditional tractor road run around the town centre.
