The famous Carlingford Oyster Festival has thrown the net out for the 2018 Morgan’s Fine Fish Carlingford Oyster Peal and this year we have 12 beautiful girls taking part. The famous festival which promises five fun filled days from Thursday 9th – Monday 13th August 2018 is looking forward to a packed programme of fun, delicious gastronomy and oyster pearl antics.
The well known ‘lovely girl’ competition that crowned over 30 pearls in its day and made many a mammy cry with pride, is polishing up the crown ready for the 2018 pearl. Participants should prepare for tasks like lunch on Carlingford Lough, tractor riding at Carlingford Oyster Farm, baking for a charity guest tea, experiencing farm life at Carlingford Open Farm, water activities (courtesy of the Carlingford Adventure Centre), dining out in Carlingford’s award winning restaurants and whooping it up at the finale night at The Four Seasons Hotel Carlingford
“The 2017 Carlingford Oyster Pearl Competition was amazing! We had so much fun and laughed our way through most of it. We were treated so well and had a real sense of adding to the whole festival. I made so many new friends and actually in the end, winning was just the icing on the cake… although the €1000 prize was very nice”, says Mary-Rose McCarragher, Carlingford Oyster Pearl 2017,
Inside information says that bling with matching wellies remains a compulsory accessory for the festival Wellie Hunt and hair dressing skills may or may not be handy at the Pearl Sheep Shearing display. This year brings a new challenge as the pearls will attend the teddy bear picnic in their lovely pyjamas accompanied by their favourite teddy! Standard criteria applies but most essential is a sense of fun. So if you fancy 5 Days of fun in Carlingford, make sure to attend our festival this year, you wont be disappointed as we have something for everyone and all our festival activities are completely free of charge.
This years festival is likely to be one to remember, so don’t miss it!
