WITH the glorious weather we’re having, it’s set up to be a fantastic weekend in town for Féile na mBláth which kicks off on Friday morning.

Young, old – and those of us in between – are all catered for in the annual festival which runs until Sunday.

And what an array of attractions it boasts!

Showcasing over 50 events during the weekend, the action kick off on Friday morning where the kiddies are being taken care of with a Teddy Bears Picnic, puppet show, ‘Music Kids’ and Red Cross Juniors.

The official opening takes place at 11.3oam followed by a primary schools’ entertainment show, craft demonstrations and the Seniors Tea Party in the Grand Hotel at 2.30pm featuring music by the Alfie Curtin Band and Ger O’Donoghue.

Later that night, at 7.30pm, there will be a Voices of Kerry Concert from the Kerry Choral Union.

There are too many events to mention on the Saturday, but some of the highlights include a flower presentation competition, dog show, football blitz, Circus Fanzini, gardening workshops, Red Cross Aid Concert and summer BBQ. And that’s just in the Town Park. There are other family events taking place in the Square.
