A taste of what is in store for the Enniskerry Victorian Field Day was given in the village last Sunday when the display and scrutineering for the inaugural Donal O'Connor Memorial Soapbox Race was held.

Eleven entries were on display showing a great variety of design and creativity. The race will be held as part of the Victorian Field Day next Sunday during the afternoon.

The festival will start on Friday evening with a concert by Bagatelle, which will be held in the festival marquee.

Then on Sunday it's the Victorian Field Day, which starts at 11 a.m.

The day will include plenty of attractions and activities for children and adults. There will be bouncy castles, pony rides, a pet farm, games, sports, a dog show, competitions, art and crafts, music and dancing, food village, and a novelty tog of war.

Admission is €10 for adults and children go free. Tickets are available at the gate and parking is free.

There will be a prize for the best dressed Victorian outfit.

Tickets to Bagatelle are €20 and available at enniskerryfestival.ie.
