A Family Fun Day and Cross Community Event organised by Downpatrick, Rowallane and Slieve Croob District Electoral Areas (DEAs) in partnership with Newcastle Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann was held recently in Castlewellan.
Visitors were treated to a range of cultural dancing displays which included Ulster Scots, Irish, Chinese and Mexican Dancing. Local children had the opportunity to participate in both Chinese Fan Dancing and Mexican Dancing workshops prior to the event and then delivered a live performance on the day.
A range of activities including face painting, glitter tattoos and various craft activities kept the children entertained. Throughout the afternoon participants sampled a range of Foods from around the world.
