This was a great family experience and one every family should part take in. A great day out lots to see and do every child should have this experience."

William Jones

This weekend Ava and I went to Portlaoise for the day to attend Laois Africa day flagship celebration which took place in the Kavanagh Park. This annual event in Portlaoise is a free family friendly event . Africa Day is a celebration of the continents unity and is the annual commemoration of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity on May 25, 1963. It is celebrated in various African countries, as well as around the world. Overall the event is a really great family day out with lots of family-focused activities, including children’s games. It was very accessible with We had a super day and will definitely be back next year for Africa Day 2019! Thanks for reading"
