A spokesperson for the Association stated: “DBRDA are pleased to once again be able to organise and provide this family fun night that forms the grand finale to our Annual Festival.

“Everyone will be made very welcome and as usual, the family Treasure Hunt gets the evening underway at 7pm, and afterwards it’s back to the hall for the steak Barbecue, which gets underway from 7:30pm onwards.

“Throughout the evening there will be plenty of entertainment for all the family including aeromodelling displays by Banbridge Aeromodelling Club and also a bouncy castle for the children.

“As darkness falls the now famous and spectacular fireworks display will get underway at around 10:30pm.

“To finish off the evening Housty will provide the music for the Old Tyme Dance in the hall until late.

“The Association would also like to acknowledge and thank Newry, Mourne & Down District Council for providing financial assistance towards the costs of the Festival events, as without it we would not have been able to hold it.”
