Six things to do at Féile na mBláth on Saturday

.

Although a few showers are forecast this morning, the afternoon should clear up, so here are a few things to get out and enjoy in Féile na mBláth on Saturday…

1. Have a nice blooming time…

Tralee Flower & Garden Club presents a festival of colour with decorative wildflower and cut flower classes in the special Flower tent. It is well worth taking a look at the remarkable creations between 10am and 5.30pm.

2. Grab a bite and look around…

Here too, you can enjoy the festival all day from 10am to 7pm with gourmet food and craft stalls on the paths in the park. There is also plenty of space to picnic.

3. Fun for the kids…

In addition to mini merry-go-rounds and bouncy castles, children can have fun with the Circus for an afternoon. They learn to spin plates, try out diablo and much more during the circus juggling workshop in the Marquee from 12:00 to 1:00 PM and from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

Afterwards, children can join Mr. Boom and Madame Bouger for the Drum Dance Workshop, an interactive show with lots of fun drumming and the chance to learn cool African rhythms, songs and dance moves. This is from 1:00 to 2:00 and from 3:00 to 4:00.

4. Testimony History…

Join over 30 re-enactors from Déise Medieval in their tented village, staffed by experienced re-enactors from all over Ireland, in Park Plaza in the Park. All participants will dress, live and work in an authentic recreation of Viking life. It takes place from 10am to 5pm.

There will also be 20-minute demonstrations of battle tactics, individual combat demonstrations and a full Melee battle to defend Tralee from new invaders at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm.

Speaking of history, ‘The Last Prince’ is a living history event featuring medieval reenactors at the Kerry County Museum, interacting with the public with medieval games and activities that the whole family can enjoy. This takes place from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
