At the Auld Lammas Fair, Ballycastle, we had lots of laughing, eating and trying different types of sweets, playing around, and even the kids got the chance to buy some toys; it was worth the visit and we all – big and small – enjoyed our day.
Auld Lammas Fair, Ballycastle, county Antrim, is a traditional festival held every year on the last Monday and Tuesday of August; where the last Monday in August is a Bank holiday in Northern Ireland. This fair is associated with Lammas harvest festival. The interesting thing to know about this fair is that it has been held for almost 400 years! WOW! It actually dates back to the 17th century.
