Festival of fun at Millfield!

Tons of family fun was on offer recently as the Millfield Shopping Centre in Balbriggan hosted one of its most popular events oft he year.

The third annual Millfield Balbriggan Family Festival was officially launched by Cllr Tony Murphy, recently.

The two-day event included a community showcase featuring 30 local organisations as well as plenty of free entertainment for the entire family, lots of giveaways, a fashion showcase and discounts in many of the shopping centre's stores.

Peter Carey, Manager of Millfield Shopping Centre commented: 'The Centre is delighted to host this event for the third year, the event has gone from strength to strength which is a real testament to the enthusiasm of the local community groups and organisations.'

And according to Mr Carey, the event will return. He said: 'We are looking forward to growing the event over future years.'

There were plenty of happy faces and a huge amount of painted ones having lots of fun over the two days in an event that drew families in from all across north Fingal.

It also provided a welcome opportunity for local organisations to attract new interest and new members.

It was all part of Millfield's continuing efforts to give back to the community that supports its trade and hopefully the event will make a welcome return, next year.
