The event is held in Ballina at the amphitheatre and, like previous years will be focused on children, especially those who have been in Children's Ward and Special Care Nursery over the years. Clowns, children's shows, and food will be there as well as the emergency services for the children. This event is free and is a wonderful family day out.
