Straw Festival draws large crowd to Magherafelt

08 June 2016

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.
