RiRa Childrens Arts Festival

The very first RiRa Childrens Arts Festival, which ran from Wednesday 15th October to Sunday 19th October, was a huge success and The Dock and The Market Yard Centre would like to say a big thank you to every one who helped make it special - to every one who came and joined in the fun, to all the performers, to our very kind sponsors - Leitrim County Council Enviroment Section, Department of Enviroment, Heritage and Local Governemnt, Ballinamore Library and Connaught Gold. Also to our fantastic facepainters, Emma and Orna, who are donating the money collected to the Jack and Jill foundation. Check out a few of the pictures from the festival below and see you all next year for what will be an even bigger and better Festival!
