The first Quarter Park Party will be a free, day-long summer event in the beautiful surroundings of Fitzgerald's Park.

Author:  CEC
Date:  28 June 2016

This fun-filled day will feature a broad range of activities from live music to performances, storytelling and community games. Opening with an Ecological Obstacle Course around the Park at midday, entertainment will come in all sorts of packages - including an hour of Mindfulness with Darina O'Shea on the sprawling lawns of the park, followed by the hilarious Ringo: Music Bingo - an innovative twist on bingo, built on excellent wordsmithery and the intros of well-known songs. Musical delights will come from Cork's favourite smooth Neo-Soul stars Shookrah, and more warm vibes to be provided by Cork Samba Band.

Gather with friends and strangers at the park bandstand for the A Summertime Sing Along Social - expect Fresh Prince's Summertime, Len's Steal My Sunshine, Cruel Summer by Bananarama, and many more sunshine tunes. The Quarter team have organised a creative Community Games programme for the energetic park-goers of all ages, including egg and spoon races and three-legged football. Bring something to share at the Story Sesh – a poem that you've written, a short story, or anything in between. Or simply bring your ears, to lend to the words on offer.
