The straw was once again the draw in Magherafelt when Mid Ulster District Council’s annual Straw Festival saw over 2000 people attend when it took place last Saturday 4 June.
The day was hailed a huge success by all who attended with the new attraction Go Fly Your Kite proving very popular. Other attractions on the day included three large straw sculptures of a tractor, a minion and a teddy and 17 scarecrows.
All of the straw characters were designed by local community-based groups for the event.
Other activities on the day included family performances, a climbing wall, a selection of inflatables and other entertainment.
