GOOD OLD FASHION FUN IN LOBINSTOWN - BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND - ON AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND
After a successful Family Fun Day debut last year and two years of boot stomping music & craic at the Hoedown in Lobinstown, both events return to the Meade Potato Company farm and food production facility in Lobinstown, Co. Meath on Sat. 5th Aug. and Sun. 6th Aug. for a farm festival weekend not to be missed. All this good old fashioned fun is in aid of the local schools Heronstown N.S. and Newtown N.S. (Family Fun Day) and the local GAA (Hoedown in Lobinstown).
Family Fun Day on the Farm
On Saturday 5th Aug. from noon to 3pm, children can dance to country tunes, enter the mini tractor grand prix, take a pony ride, have a bounce on a selection of bouncy castles, get their faces painted, enjoy the farm animals, kick hot shots and take a tour of the farm and food production facility to learn more about the farm to fork journey of fresh produce.
Admission is €5 per child and includes all of the above activities, and free entries into a draw to win an annual family membership pass for Tayto Park. A BBQ stand and ice cream van will also offer families great value to make this a fun day that’s easy on the pocket but high in the fun stakes for all the family. The car park opens at 11:30am so get there early is the advice to ensure you enjoy every minute of the farm fun that’s on offer this bank holiday weekend.

The Meade potato store will be transformed into a bona fide barn dance venue complete with a saloon offering happy hour specials and good value all night. There will be prizes for the Best Dressed Cowgirl and Best Dressed Cowboy as well as a jiving competition for those twinkle toes that fancy their chances. A night not to be missed for all ages over 18.
