Get into Glengormley for the Culture Carnival

16 June 2016


Glengormley will be awash with colour and music on Saturday 25 June for this year’s Culture Carnival.  Dance your way to Lilian Bland Community Park at 12 noon for a great day of carnival atmosphere and family fun.  Get in the swing for samba with circus skills, face painting, bouncy castles, cage football and lots more.

A wide range of activities are planned for the park, where family fun is happening until 5pm.  The theme for this year’s carnival is “Be United” with food demonstrations from across the world, a carnival parade and music all on offer to celebrate the theme.  The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor John Scott, commented: “Make sure you visit Lilian Bland Community Park and take in all the colour and fun on offer at the Culture Carnival.  This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the world we live in and experience different cultures.”

This colourful event, now in its third year, is funded by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, Antrim and Newtownabbey Policing and Community Safety Partnership, The Executive Office and jointly organised with the Community Relations Forum and Glengormley Chamber & Traders’ Association.
