Ballinamuck gears up for Olde Fair Day

Ballinamuck gears up for Olde Fair Day

Ballinamuck's  Olde Fair Day returns on August 21, and the fourth annual event is set to be bigger and better than ever.

The day will begin with a Vintage Parade from Gaigue Cross at 12.30pm which will travel down to the fair field  across from the '98 Bar. The vintage cars will be on display around the '98. 

Participants in the parade are advised to line up at 11.30am sharp at Gaigue cross.

 Country music superstars Declan Nerney and Mick Flavin will lead the vintage procession and Longford Pipe Band will also take part. 

There will be lots of traditional skills on show on the day from boxty making, butter making and basket making to shoeing horses and the ICA will be in their tent selling tea, cakes and buns.

There will be a livestock display as well as a dog show, while a competition seeks the  best dressed man and woman in traditional costume.

Pony and trap rides, three legged races, egg and spoon races, cow bingo, mouse racing, duck in the pond, bucking bull, a model train display, wood carving and John Deer model displays as well as live music round off what promises to be an unforgettable day in Ballinamuck.
