Photograph of the Day – Education through celebration!

Orangefest leaflet, shopping and processions

Flyer that was brought to my attention yesterday on the inside it says “If you’re visiting Northern Ireland in July make time to enjoy an old tradition with a beautiful new look OrangeFest.

Edit to add photograph of the interior of leaflet

There’s a brief history section a little bit about culture from which my fav quote is….. “And for fans of all things pyrotechnic, the spectacle of the annual Eleventh night bonfires all across Northern Ireland will certainly be a memorable one.”

An exhibition at Schomberg House and opening times is mentioned then that the shops are open as usual.

There is also a helpful hint section on the RHS…Please don’t walk through the procession whilst it’s in progress. If you would like to cross through just ask a marshall who’d be happy to advise when it’s safe to do so.

If you wish to enjoy a drink don’t forget that it is illegal to drink alcohol on the  streets of Belfast. Disposal facilities will be provided at the main entry points of the city for open bottles or cans of alcohol.

Don’t forget the shops are open for business as usual from 12.30pm-4.30pm.
