Portavogie Seafood Festival Aug 11th. Or is it the 12th ?
« on: August 07, 2018, 04:24:43 PM »


The Portavogie Seafood Festival is on this Saturday, Aug 11th from 12pm-5pm. Or is it Sunday 12th August? The advert says Saturday 12th of August, which is Sunday. They can't both be right. You best check before you set off.  I haven't a clue what this will be like, though possibly a right non-event if you get the wrong day. Hopefully a lot better than the geography field trips we did to Portavogie and Ardglass when I was a kid, which basically entailed standing in the rain with our hoods up, looking at freshly caught crabs.

There's a lot of other events on locally in this list, assuming they got their dates right. Doh !

Hope you find something of interest.

The error seems to have been corrected, and the text on that site now reads,...

"Saturday 11th August, The Harbour, Portavogie Seafood Festival, 12noon-5pm"

"With celebrity chefs Paul Rankin and Nick Nairn"

"Join us in Portavogie on Saturday 11 August for a superb family day out set in harbour surroundings, with splendid seafood produce, children’s entertainment and much more !"
