Dominick Street Family Fun

Sunday 20th June 2010 from 12pm to 5pm will see Dominick Street in Mullingar come alive with what promises to be a fun family day out for all. The event, A Taste of Mullingar, organised in association with the Mullingar Chamber of Commerce, Westmeath Co. Co, the Dominick Street Traders and the Farmers Market, is going to see a hype of activity on Dominick Street all day on Sunday 20th June. 

To support the closing ceremony of Destination Sport Mullingar, the traders of Dominick Street and many more will be out in their droves, on the street, selling an array of products not to mention the fine food stalls and handmade crafts, provided by the local farmers market.

Thomas Nally of Rochforts and member of the organising committee said, “This promises to be a great day. We’re really going to bring a festival feel to the street with all the stalls, tug a wars, music and lots of different children’s entertainment going on. There’s going to be a great buzz about the place on the day.”

 Children’s entertainment is a big focus for the day with free face painting and balloon moulding. There will also be various different games like sponge throwing and basket ball. A fire breathing show is also on the cards for the day. And in honour of Fathers Day, the organisers are calling all Dads’ and their children to take part in a farther and son/daughter race. 

As Dominick Street will be closed to traffic on the 20th, the organisers are asking anyone who may leave their car on the street on the Saturday night , (19th June), to kindly have it removed by 9am on Sunday morning, (20th June), to facilitate the construction of tents and ease of set up for the day.

Karagh Fox, Business Development Manager with the Mullingar Chamber said, “It’s going to be a great day for the businesses not only on Dominick Street but throughout the town. The closing of Destination Sport, combined with A Taste of Mullingar should certainly see the streets alive and bustling.”

As part of the closing ceremony of Destination Sport Mullingar, around 65 of the Lakeside Wheelers will travel about 15-20 kilometres outside of Mullingar, to greet three cyclists, that will just have travelled the length and breadth of the Country, as park of National Bike week 2010. The bike brigade will travel up through Mount Street and reside at the bottom of Dominick Street where they’ll be welcomed by their many supporters, as well as some special guests that will be announced shortly.
