Carnival 2017 News

Weekend of June 16-18 
NEWS From latest Meeting - 16th March

The Carnival committee met at  Barrons' last Saturday morning, and members are hard at work sorting out the details of this year's Carnival, which is now just two months away.
It will open on Friday, June 16, with the Dromana Five and some street entertainment. The one-way system in Main Street has made the usual race finish at the Square more problemmatic, due to traffic flow issues, and a slight change of location for the race finish and entertainment is currently being considered.
For Saturday June 17, we are delighted to announce that the Maderson family will open the exhibition space at Derriheen House between 1 and 4 PM, and all are welcome to come and view Arthur's latest paint-magic. At the same time, the main Carnival fun and games will take place across the road at Affane Cappoquin GAA field, by kind permission of the club. We are still working on the details here.
At other stages over the weekend, with times to be confirmed as yet, there will be the Castle Street Cascade, historical walking tour, art classes, scratch races at the rowing club and we are also working on a second art exhibition.
The next committee meeting, to which any interested newcomers will be very welcome, is scheduled for Saturday, April 30 in Barrons' at 10 AM.
