Lots to Do in Limerick this weekend! - Africa Day and Vintage Car Show for Starters!

Africa Day Limerick will take place in the grounds of Limerick City Hall on Sunday, 30th May 2010 (for directions to the venue, click here). Irish Aid has chosen a food-related theme for its Africa Day celebrations in 2010, with a particular focus on issues such as food security and hunger. 
The flagship Africa Day event in Limerick will be a fun, family-friendly day out, featuring interactive cultural and educational activities for both children and adults that celebrate and showcase the diversity of African cultures and societies.
Upon arrival at Africa Day Limerick, visitors will be greeted by the sights, sounds and smells of Africa.  The African Bazaar will be a hub of activity, showcasing the food, music and unique cultures of over 20 different African countries.  The Embassies Section will house displays by five of the African countries that have Embassies in Ireland, while in the Education Zone, visitors will be able to interact with development NGOs and learn more about their work in Africa and development issues through participatory, fun activities. 
If you are looking for traditional African food and drinks, visit the Food Zone, where a wide variety of food - from all regions of Africa - will be on offer throughout the day. 
Music will once again be a key feature of Africa Day, with performances from African and Irish acts on the Music Stage.  And workshops - on literature, drumming and policy issues - will be available in the Speakers’ Corner over the course of the day.
