There are some key changes planned for this year's Blarney Bash;
The afternoon, post-parade activities will continue to be family focused with a number of enhancements including magicians, Boy Scout and Lego League activities, performance by the Dublin Cornet Band, and the Wee Folk Crafts area.  
Everything will occur in a single tent this year, and we will reconfigure the tent between the afternoon and evening activities. 
'Ol Bag of Nails will be serving food this year, instead of the food trucks.
The big change for the evening activities is the addition of the "Best Legs in a Kilt" Contest which will be advertised in advance and will draw interest and participation in the evening portion of the Bash.
