THE town of Dolores will once again by holding their annual August Fair and Fiesta between Sunday July 29 and Monday August 6.
The nine-day spectacular promises a varied and fun packed programme of events for people of all ages to enjoy. As well as a wealth of concerts and shows, there is as always a heavy concentration of animal-related attractions that include an equestrian exhibition and the 25th National Animal and Livestock Fair.
Definitely not to be missed is the famous ‘Cow Pat Competition’ on the final night on Monday August 6 between 7pm and 10pm. A field is divided into numerous squares and tickets can be bought for €2.50. The person who owns the ticket with the square that ‘receives’ the first cow pat wins €2,000.
Don’t miss it…and hope your cow doesn’t miss your square either!
