There will be Bouncy Castles, theme park bounce ‘N’ Slide, face painters, pony rides, Disco Dome and a huge soft finish obstacle course.

On arrival at Punchestown families will be greeted by live street theatre with jugglers, stilt walkers, clowns and balloon artists mingling through the crowd. At 1.30pm the 20 piece Tallaght Festival Band will lead the now famous Punchestown Fancy Dress Parade and we would encourage children of all ages to dress up and take part. There will be a prize for first, second and third place. All participants will go home with a goody bag. Live music and Leah Moran Stage School displays will happen on the main stage before racing.

The Irish Defence Forces based only a few miles from Punchestown on the Curragh will have a huge display for children of all ages. Army tanks and equipment will be showcased by real life Irish Defence Force members. Our Festival Shopping Village will host 60 exhibitors showcasing Irish brands and visitors from the UK with millenary, jewellery, art and sculpture, designer clothing for both kids and adults, indoor, outdoor, homewares and lifestyle products so make sure to allow time for a browse.

Simply just a great day out for all involved!
