Story: Lisa Harrison-Winfindale

The Firth Park Festival took place on 28th June, on a gloriously sunny day in the middle of the recent heat wave. Residents from the surrounding areas took full advantage of the beautiful weather to come together and celebrate in a day filled with music, activities, information and fun.

Young people in particular had plenty to do, as much of the festival was taken up by rides for children, and the local police had a car present which children could sit in, try on a helmet and play with the siren.

Fir Vale resident Vince McCarthy said, “It’s a lovely day for it. My kids are well occupied, and I’m getting tired just watching them. It’s a shame the only food is burgers and hotdogs though – I’m a Caeliac so I can’t have the bread. I popped up to Somerfield though and grabbed some fruit so I’m happy.”
