Dublin Bay Prawns

 I'm willing to bet that a great deal of people are not aware that Dublin has a prawn festival.

Well, we do.  And it's on next weekend in Howth, our very own district 9.

Friday the 27th has a couple of prawn-related events but the main action is on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th when Howth village will become a hive of activity with tasting stalls, cooking demos, walks up Howth Head (to see prawns in their natural habitat?!) live music, and family entertainment.  There'll be fireworks on Saturday night too.

The full program is here and provided the weather behaves, I think this should be a really fun weekend.  Some events require prior registration but all the details are on their website.  I hope there's scampi...
