New this year, Fuse FM will be on hand with an afternoon of outdoor entertainment in Castlecroft Square on Friday 12th April with Ulster Scots yarns, artisan stalls traditional music, balloon modellers and walkabout characters from 11am – 4pm, helping to build excitement for the main event.

It looks set to be a weekend not to be missed with in-store fashion and lifestyle events and special promotions in many of the town’s unique shops and boutiques.

Looking ahead to the event, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “Members of the public have really embraced Ballymoney Spring Fair since it began and this year is set to be our best yet. There will be a terrific variety of sights and sounds to enjoy as we celebrate a great day out for everyone which showcases the best of what Ballymoney has to offer.”

On Saturday, the Spring Fair will open with a ‘Quiet Morning’ for children with additional needs at Megaw Park from 10am – 11.30am with a petting farm and craft workshops to enjoy.

From 12 noon, members of the public can look forward to a host of free attractions including duck herding, petting farm, pony rides with Riding for the Disabled, horse-shoe demonstrations, inflatables, live music and street theatre.

From 11am-4pm, Castlecroft Square will come alive with Naturally North Coast & Glens Artisan Market selling unique local food and drink items along with quality arts and crafts. Throughout the town, browse the many independent and family-run businesses which help to set Ballymoney apart.
