Furry Friends Have Fun at the Lough!

11 June 2015

Bears young and old gathered at Antrim Lough Shore Park recently, for the annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic.

A great day was had by all as they enjoyed watching the Goldilocks and the Three Bears show by Mr Hullabaloo, taking part in the Jump, Jiggle and Jive dance workshops, making teddy themed arts and crafts and not forgetting the Teddy Bears’ Hospital from The Big Telly Theatre Company and Men’s Shed Steeple Antrim. 

The teddy bears were dressed in their best and sashayed down the red carpet for the judges to see who would be voted the best dressed. The overall winner for the under 5s was Sienna Cumming and the over 5s was Taliyah McNiece.

Deputy Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor John Blair commented, “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic was a great success and we were delighted to have such a good turnout on the day. Everyone had made such an effort with their teddy bear costumes and I would especially like to thank Castle Mall, Junction One and Antrim Forum for sponsoring the prizes.”
