Take part in the fancy dress competition, listen to Q Breakfast’s Stephen and Cate who will be entertaining the crowds with great music and give-aways from the festival stage. The ever-popular float parade will depart from the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa at 7pm and the event will finish with a spectacular fireworks display on the beach at 7:45pm.
The Newcastle Chamber of Commerce is again taking the helm in the organisation of the parade – this year’s floats features a range of participants from the local area, including schools, pipe bands, community groups and clubs, all eager to win the great prizes on offer.
