City Spectacular Festival Highlights

There are so many exciting things to look forward to in this year’s City Spectacular Event. We have rounded up a few must-sees not to be missed this year.

Pet Wellness area PET- ACULAR with (DSPCA)

Bring your pets along and they could be the star of their very own photo shoot. The DSPCA will be on hand to answer all of your pet’s health questions. Purina will be available with a range of pet food and a photo booth for photographs.

Just Eat Street

The International street food village will be a feast of fun, food, and live entertainment running the length of Merrion Square South.

Relax in the sunshine while the Just Eat waiter service takes and delivers food orders with over 25 cuisines to choose from.

Family Entertainment

Family, health and fitness, and well-being continue to be strong theme running through the City Spectacular Festival. Ready, Steady Grow is a fully interactive children’s show from Imaginosity, Dublin Children’s Museum with free drama and dance classes.

KIDS CORNER is back this year due to popular demand and promises to be messier, meaner, and more mischievous than ever.

Children will get the opportunity to put their parents on trial and decide what punishment they should receive.

Like a custard pie to the face or maybe a bottle of ice-cold water.
