With a full line up of events soon to be announced, Paul Regan, Chairman of the Ballina Street Festival says “Ballina loves to put on a great show, we love welcoming people to our town and are so proud of the tourism offering Ballina and North Mayo has to offer. Ballina Street Festival has a seven day packed to capacity programme catering for all tastes and ages, from the young to the mature, offering classic Treasure Hunt, musical extravaganza, a big old Street Party and bumper Children’s Programme. We’re also proud to be hosting two events on our glorious River Moy; the River Moy Swim and Stand Up Paddle boarding and Sail on the River Moy. We would like to acknowledge the support and help from Ballina Salmon Festival.”M
