Party In The Park

07 August 2018

Antrim Castle Gardens was awash with people as the crowds arrived in their droves from the offset to join us for Party in The Park on Saturday 4 August.

Music legends Clubsound and guest Trevor Kelly, now in their 70th year on the road owned the stage as they treated the crowds to a two-hour Rock N Roll set featuring all the favourites from that era. Warming up the audience beforehand was Tommy McMeekin and the Jam Club, showcasing the best of our local talent.

The Mayor, Councillor Paul Michael commented “I am thrilled to see the crowds here today enjoying this fabulous event. Antrim Castle Gardens lends itself so well to events and the atmosphere here today is amazing. It is fantastic to see so many families having a great time”

The Parterre Gardens were packed as the crowds availed of the Punch & Judy show, Crazy Golf, Swing Boats, The Safari Train and Scientific Sue’s fantastic magic show. Other highlights of this free family day out were the Water Zorbs and Paddle boats on the long pond, the indoor cinema, inflatables and the selection of walkabout characters.

The ice-cream van was a big hit cooling down the crowds in the glorious weather, as the crowds kicked backed and soaked up the party atmosphere.
