12th March 2011 Brighton Pier Congathon. To celebrate the lunch of British Tourism Week Brighton Pier kicked off on Saturday with a congathon. Over 300 people lined up to conga up the pier and back down again. It turned into a fun filled afternoon - the goody bags handed out to the participants were stuffed with sweets toys and coupons for free rides, donuts and ice creams so that visitors could smile the delights of the pier whilst they were there. Entertainment laid on before and after the conga included a Juice FM DJ, dancers and a donut eating competition along with several Joggleberry acts, bands, singers - including Elvis - dancers and hoop star Jo Mondy.
