Spring in full bloom for annual fair
Spring is here and with it comes Belfast City Council’s annual Spring Fair and Flower Show which will take place at Malone House and Barnett Demesne this weekend, 21-22 April.
There will be lots of free family activities on offer – from colourful spring plant and craft stalls, a scarecrow field and miniature spring gardens to music, dance and children’s entertainment including a petting farm and magical storytelling. Prizes will also be up for grabs in our children’s competitions.
The flower show will be showcasing blooms from absolute beginners to flower experts, with stunning exhibits of daffodils, orchids, tulips, bonsai trees, shrubs and pot plants.
Alderman Tommy Sandford, Chair of the council’s People and Communities Committee, said: “Our Spring Fair is always a great family event with thousands of people of all ages coming through the gates. I hope everyone will take advantage of what’s on offer this year and enjoy what we have planned over the two days – and the best thing is, it’s all free.”
Parking at the site will be limited so visitors are encouraged to use public transport to the event with a bus service operating from Donegall Square East in the city centre. A park and ride service will also operate from Mary Peters Track to Barnett Demesne between 1pm and 5.45pm on both days.
