MUSIC, fashion and family fun were to the fore as Rose of Tralee, Haley O’Sullivan and a bunch of this year’s Roses were in Tralee last week to announce details of the festival entertainment line-up.

The festival will feature over 80 hours of free and affordable entertainment in the Dome and around the streets of Tralee from August 15-19.

Among this year’s highlights will be the Union J and Walking on Cars concerts on Denny Street on Friday 15th and Sunday 17th respectively and at only €10, these much sought tickets are selling fast.

“We pride ourselves on being able to stage such a wide-ranging programme of free and affordable entertainment to suit people of all ages,” said General Manager of the Rose of Tralee International Festival, Oliver Hurley.

From the Dome to Denny Street and along The Mall to The Square, the public will enjoy five daily schedules of entertainment including Nathan Carter, Derek Ryan, Brendan Shine and Birds Amusements as well as the spectacular parades on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.

The skies over Tralee will light up with two spectacular fireworks displays and the annual Skyfest Air Display on Sunday 17th.

Family town is a kaleidoscope of fun and colour that will come alive at midday every day during the Festival. A fun-packed programme of events to suit children of all ages in the comfortable, family-friendly setting of Pearse Park will feature – Circus Workshops, Planetarium Dome, Face Painting, Balloon Modelling, Art Attack, Cheeky Chalk, Water Walkers & Human Gyroscope,Fun Races, Crystal Fountain Wishing Well, Carnival Cut-outs, Giant Bubble Throwing & much more.

Instead of walking on cars, many people will be visiting this year’s Festival to exercise their legs by taking part in the second Rose of Tralee International 10k Run around the streets of Tralee, driving home the message that there is something for everyone at the Festival.

The Festival Dome will be the venue for the Kerrygold International Rose Ball, the first official event of the 2014 Rose of Tralee International Festival. The Kerryman Rose of Tralee Autumn Winter Fashion Show on Sunday 17th August will be guaranteed to fuel dreams and keep the paparazzi cameras flashing.

Full details of all the events at the 2014 Rose of Tralee International Festival and tickets to all Dome events, as well as the Union J and Walking On Cars Concerts on Denny Street, are available from www.roseoftralee.ie.
