Hillsborough International Oyster Festival
Where is it? Hillsborough Town Centre, Hillsborough, Co. Down, BT26 6AR Northern Ireland
OK, so you’d expect to see oyster eating competitions and food stalls aplenty at an Oyster Festival, but this event has some surprises, too.
For starters, there's a masters golf tournament, with some decent prizes to be had. You could enter the 'Iron Oyster Challenge': orienteering, an obstacle course and other (as yet unspecified!) tasks. Even if you don't win, you might still get the coveted 'God loves a tryer' award! Or you could get a team together and race your own vehicle in the 'Hillsborough Wacky Soapbox Derby' (prizes for best costumes and accompanying soundtrack, too!).
Evening events include a Gala Ball, and a ladies' night with fashion show, demonstrations of the latest hair trends, and the chance to shop till you drop. Not to mention the crowning of Miss Oyster Pearl (so good to see her come out of her shell at last...).
Petrolheads will like Supercar Sunday, where you can test drive a Ferrari or Porsche, or experience a speed run through a rally stage with one of Northern Ireland's best known drivers.
Check online for prices for the various events - proceeds help support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, funding training at lifeboat stations across Northern Ireland.
