Cork Community Art Link are performing ‘Life In The Boot’ from their giant Boot which will be in the park for the day.
We will also have Donnacha Cahill’s larger than life Gramophone which plays music, and you can also link up to it with your smart phone and play your own tunes!

We’ll also have the Cow-Go-Round! Children climb on some very unusual cows while their parents are milking a life-size cow, giving out the power necessary to make the carousel rotate.

Jenny from Red Balloon is busy blowing up hundreds of balloons for her installations and a few surprises along the way, and we'll have the usual fantastic food offering from the best street food in Cork at our market so you won’t go hungry!
