10:00 - 17:00, Saturday 3 August 2013
Bring the kids and a camera as you get close to these wonderful animals. Held in partnership with the Donkey Breed Society, the annual Donkey Day proves that donkeys are more than just something to admire in the fields as these wonderful animals take on the donkey obstacle course, egg and spoon races and musical chairs in the BDS Championship.
DBS members, two-legged as well as four legged, will also get the chance to dress in traditional garb from farming eras gone by, with the most authentic costume winning a prize in the Fancy Dress Competition.
To round out the day, following the presentation of rosettes to the winning donkeys, the handlers and their animals will join the Donkey Day Parade around Ballycultra town.
Pictured above are Ulster Folk & Transport Museum visitor guides dressed in traditional costume with donkeys.
