Irish flags will be
flying high at Monmouth
Park for the 43rd
annual Irish Festival on Sunday. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. with a
traditional Irish mass in the Monmouth Café.
Throughout the day fans can enjoy
Ceili and Irish step dancing, a pipe and drum competition, food and craft
vendors, live Irish music, and a human horse race where runners will bolt out
of the starting gate and race on the track to raise money for charity. There
will be plenty of opportunities for family fun as patrons with children can
bring them to the Irish Festival’s Kid’s Zone and to Monmouth Park’s
family fun day in the picnic area.
Patrons wearing kilts will receive
free admission to the festival. Gates open early at 10 a.m.
