    • Hi Stewart & Kathy,

      Looking at the event guide, this weekend (3rd – 5th October 2014) is “Irish Weekend” – with Irish entertainment, stalls, food and drinks.

      In terms of the entertainment, there is a Celtic band, Irish Pipers and Irish Dancing. For food and drink, they are offering Irish Coffee, Guinness, Kilkenny, Cider, Baked Potatoes, Irish Stew, Sandwiches, pies, sausage rolls, cakes and Irish biscuits. They also have the dutch favourites of Poffertjes, Croquettes, Frikendallen, Reifkoek, Gozleme and Chevap Sausage.

      For kids, it is noted that they have the following activities: sculpture exhibit, alpacas, fairy garden, hunt for gnomes, tulip picking, old fashioned Dutch games, historical displays, as well as photo opportunities with Windmills, flowers and staff in traditional Dutch costumes.

      I couldn’t find a hourly breakup of the day, but the Festival runs until Sunday from 10am until 5pm.

      I hope this helps and have a great weekend – the weather looks good and no mention of rain!
