IT was a super Saturday of delicious treats to enjoy all around town as the Tralee Food Festival drew large crowds to town.

The Taste Trail, music entertainment and food stalls were all a success and with the weather again expected to play ball, there’s even more fun for all the family to enjoy today, particularly on Domnick Street.

The Artisan Food Markets in the Square will once again take place from 10am to 6pm featuring some of the best producers from the region, while again there will be music in the Square from Give Us Two Weeks (12 noon), Owen Rua (2pm to 4pm) and Lauryn Griffin (4pm to 6pm), while the Siamsa Tíre dancers will give a performance at 2pm.

There’ll also be three cookery demonstrations on Domnick Street from local chefs. At 1pm it’s Aidan O’Shea from Spa Seafoods followed by a Sushi Masterclass from Ross and Nina Hurley of Kerry Sushi at 1.45pm. Then at 2.30pm Massimiliano Bagaglini from Conviviuum and Noel Keane have a culinary cook-off.

There will also be street food vendors present today from 10am to 10pm on The Mall, where people can enjoy all kinds of delicious stuff.

The Taste Trail is a festival favourite and over 20 venues will be taking part from 12noon to 4pm (see the trail below).

You can pay as you go, but better value is offered from the booklets containing 10 tokens which can be bought for €22 from Tech Co. on Dominick Street, Ugly Mug coffee shop on Edward Street and The Glasshouse on Edward Street. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday! Scroll down for photos…
