There was a big crowd about town again this year for the Festival, especially on Friday, the Harvest Fair Day and on Sunday for the Float and Band Parade and other events, which were taking place. Stalls of all kinds, Clothes, Shoes, Toys and Tools etc. lined the street on both sides on the Harvest Fair Day. They were only allowed on one side of the roads into town this year and they were out past the Convent Gate on the Mill Road, up the Glen Road to the school, out past the Garage on the Station Road and down to Ard Patrick on the Narin Road. There were also fortune-tellers, games to play, and prizes to be won, bouncing castles, Mc Gurk’s Amusements and loads of other things to do. Weather wise the Harvest Fair Day was good until evening when we had a few showers, Saturday was lovely but we had some rain on Sunday.
