The park will be jammed with entertainment for all ages including face painting, traditional games and street entertainers, Tug of war, food stalls, crafts, and a showcase of cabaret and street theatre. Parade will land in the park in all its glory after its odyssey from Scoil Bhride via Beechwood Road and Annavilla. There promises to be plenty of colour with all the self made costumes. If you are hoping to hear some good old-fashioned drumming the children will be accompanied by the fantastic Mad Hatters as in previous years. Michael Bourke will bring the finishing touches as he leads the parade in his role as Grand Marshall.
