Thousands expected at Slemish thumbnail

THOUSANDS of people are expected to tackle the slopes of the historic Slemish Mountain this St Patrick's Day.
Mid and East Antrim Borough Council has teamed up with Broughshane and District Community Association, and Raceview Mill to deliver a full day of entertainment to suit all ages.
As well as enjoying the spectacular views from the mountain, there is also a busy schedule of traditional music, dance, drama, storytelling and children's crafts to enjoy.
There will also be an artisan market, speciality car show, and an inflatable play park at Raceview Mill with a live music stage in the centre of Broughshane.
The village is still celebrating its success in winning Channel 4's Village of the Year competition and many of the businesses have special offers on the day.
We're also keen to see your selfies at Slemish to make sure you show us all the fun you're having by using the hashtag #SlemishSelfie
There will be no parking at Slemish, Carnstroan Road or Carnstroan Lane, so a free park and ride service will operate from the Michelin plant, Broughshane, just off the M2.
The shuttle bus to Slemish Mountain will run continually from 9am - 3.30pm with bus stops at Raceview Mill and Broughshane so nobody will miss out on the free entertainment and shopping offers.
The one and a half kilometre walk at Slemish takes approximately one hour up and down and it is strongly advised that suitable clothing and strong footwear is worn. Sections of the short climb can be steep and slippery and might not be suitable for all. The flat riverside walk at Raceview Mill is a delightful alternative.
Come rain or shine, Raceview Mill and Broughshane and District Community Association will provide the hub of entertainment for the event with great discounts on offer and fun for all the family to enjoy.

This event has been supported by The Executive Office through Mid and East Antrim Borough Council's Good Relations Programme.
