Follow the end of the rainbow to Solitude Park in Banbridge on Saturday 19 March as Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council host a plentiful pot of free fun for everyone with the annual St Patrick’s Family Fun Day.

The craic gets underway at 2pm and runs until 4pm and features a host of music, activities and entertainment guaranteed to get you in the mood for a sensational St Patrick’s party.

The live music kicks off with the fantastic foot tapping Fireside Folk getting everyone up for a jig and a hoolie before the fabulous Nooks take to the stage with their quirky adaptations of modern and classic rock and pop hits.

Activities on offer for younger revellers include fun inflatables and amusement rides, face painting, balloon modellers, arts & crafts workshops, giant garden games plus a ‘treemendous’ treasure hunt with a difference!

For those who fancy creating a bit of a splash, Banbridge Kayak and Canoe Club will be offering ‘come and try’ taster sessions.

Go along and meet the Fizzy Fairy the happy-go-lucky magical woodland sprite and some of her friends including Tight-Fisted O’Lanaghan, Medusa, and Leary Quinn the leprechaun who will be sure to have you craicing-up with their mischievous shenanigans
