Bloom in the Park, Thursday 30th May until Monday 3rd June 2013

Bloom  in the Park takes place again in Phoenix Park over the June Bank Holiday weekend.  I have been meaning to go along for years, but have not made it yet, but will aim to go this year for sure.  It is Ireland's largest gardening, food & family event.  There will be a special kids zone called Budding Bloomers’, which will have a mix of features aimed to keep the younger audience entertained and active.  Hamley’s will return for the third year running and its daily Teddy Bear’s picnics will include Teddy Bear storytelling, sing alongs and games. Face painting, nail painting and glitter tattoos will also be on offer. The Food Dudes stand will include a mix of interactive activities for children, with the overall aim of encouraging them to get their five a day. The Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme is an award winning programme developed to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school at home.  There will also be a dedicated Children's Stage featuring Irish dancing, magician Billy Bubbles and science impresario Scientific Sue. Go along and find out how exploding vegetables are used to power cars, see magical colour changes, vats of slime, and disappearing water demonstrations.   Great news is - kids attend Bloom for free!   For more info, see
