Blossom Ireland Family Fun Walk 2012
After months of preparation the day had finally arrived for our first ever Blossom Ireland Family Fun Walk. The sun was shining, all our volunteers arrived and the area around the Main Avenue in St. Anne’s park rapidly took on the air of a mini-festival. Tents were erected, bunting hung, a merchandising stall was set-up, face painters got ready and we even had a few superheroes on standby! The organising committee saw their months of hard work come to fruition.
What took place over the next few hours far exceeded our wildest dreams. Not only did the sun shine but we estimated that over 1000 people turned up to show their support. The atmosphere was electric, due in no small way to the fantastic Dublin All Stars Marching Band who played us all the way down the Avenue. But above all the swell of emotion and goodwill towards Blossom Ireland was just incredible.
On behalf of everyone here at Blossom Ireland I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make the first ever Fun Walk such a very special day indeed. We’re looking forward to next year already…
