Irish flags will be flying high at Monmouth Park for the 43rd annual Irish Festival on Sunday. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. with a traditional Irish mass in the Monmouth Café.   

            Throughout the day fans can enjoy Ceili and Irish step dancing, a pipe and drum competition, food and craft vendors, live Irish music, and a human horse race where runners will bolt out of the starting gate and race on the track to raise money for charity. There will be plenty of opportunities for family fun as patrons with children can bring them to the Irish Festival’s Kid’s Zone and to Monmouth Park’s family fun day in the picnic area.   

            Patrons wearing kilts will receive free admission to the festival. Gates open early at 10 a.m.
