St. Pa­trick’s Fes­ti­val to put spring in step

Bray People - - Baptism Special -

WITH free mu­sic trails, a huge ceili and the re­turn of the fun­fair, Bray’s St. Pa­trick’s Fes­ti­val is ex­pected to put a spring in our steps as the weather warms up.

Arts, Youth, Sport­ing & Com­mu­nity groups across Bray are be­ing in­vited to take part, once again as prepa­ra­tions get.

Now in its sixth year the Bray St Pa­trick’s Fes­ti­val is tak­ing place be­tween March 12 and 17.

The six-day fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing the na­tional hol­i­day is now one of the largest such St Pa­trick’s events in the Ir­ish cal­en­dar.

‘We are call­ing on every­one in the area to get in­volved in cre­at­ing an­other suc­cess­ful pa­rade and fes­ti­val,’ said Chair­per­son of the Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee Mick Glynn. ‘We have al­ready re­ceived great in­ter­est for this year’s pa­rade in­clud­ing sev­eral in­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pants.’

The Fes­ti­val is pro­moted by Bray & District Cham­ber and sup­ported by Bray Town Coun­cil. The com­mit­tee will help any group will­ing to par­tic­i­pate with ideas and as­sis­tance. There are a num­ber of awards up for grabs with a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Bray Peo­ple amongst the judg­ing panel on the view­ing stand.
