Music was played courtesy of St Peter & Paul’s Brass & Reed band and Jazz Trio 3dB. Local chef Stephen Grimes gave cookery demonstrations to the delight of the watching crowd. A great day out was had by all!!

A big well done to Balbriggan Chamber of Commerce, Fingal County Council, Balbriggan Town Council and the many people who put this great event together for a great day out!
