Hop on board a free shuttle bus to this year’s Portavogie Seafood Festival

Join local school children, Alfie McBurney and Lily Kelly, who are taking the opportunity to relax and “go green” by taking the free shuttle bus to this year’s Portavogie Seafood Festival on Saturday 11 August, 12noon-5pm.

Ards and North Down Borough Council is providing the free return shuttle bus service from Newtownards Bus Station to the heart of the event, Portavogie Harbour. There will be three departures during the day. For a timetable see visitardsandnorthdown.com.

Little ones can be in for a chance to win a cash prize by dressing up ‘sea-themed’, just like Alfie and Lily. A prize each will be awarded to best dress boy and girl. There will be plenty more sea-themed fun for the little ones to enjoy including a touch tank on the day.

The festival as always will celebrate all things seafood. With cooking demos hosted by celebrity chefs, Paul Rankin and Nick Nairn, and Northern Ireland’s biggest fish market and artisan food stalls. Be sure to catch the free bus!
