The Donegal Youth Service “Party in the Car Park” took place last Saturday on Oliver Plunkett Road and was a 100% success according to those surveyed during the event.
There were 20 live acts and loads of fun activities including Inflatable fun, Art tent, Magic Show, BBQ and the Road Safety Authority Rollover interactive exhibit.
The day was characterised by a fun family atmosphere with the great buzz being helped enormously by the good weather and the Donegal Youth Councillors entertaining the crowd with street games, some traditional ones and some not so traditional!
The bands were from all over Donegal, we had “The Nameless” from Dungloe, “Blunt Vegas” from Letterkenny and “Eve Murtagh” from Magheroarty. We also had “ Lost Avenue” from Derry.
One of those surveyed said “everyone got involved, everyone was relaxed and it was great craic.”
Gareth Gibson Information Coordinator said,
“This has been an annual event for 9 years now and is a great chance for families of the town to have a day out and appreciate young bands expressing themselves.”
“It takes a lot of work behind the scenes to organise an event like this and the young people, volunteers and staff deserve a lot of credit.”
“Furthermore, working in partnership with the Letterkenny Live Committee has benefited our event. All in all, a great day, the young people of the County did themselves proud, yet again.”
Donegal Youth Service would like to thank everyone who contributed to what was a great day at “Party in the Car Park” 2013.
We are looking forward to next already and welcome anybody who wants to get involved.
