The weather certainly held out for our fourth Porty Party held on 13th Aug 2006 on Portobello promenade.
This year’s entertainment was a fun filled family day and consisted of an eclectic mix of music styles.
Opening this years event seen our very own local lass Maeve Gilchrist playing selected numbers from her debut album “Reaching Me”.
This then set the mood for more musical entertainment provided by local entertainers playing sounds ranging from Bluegrass to Ceilidh tunes, not forgetting our local “Didgeridoo” player Mark.
D’s diner served up refreshments including cookies, doughnuts and hot dogs in a 50’s diner style.
There was fun for all the children with games and prizes to be won. The children enjoyed a “dressing up” tent and having their photo taken. There was also a local professional face-painter and a stall for kids to create their very own windsock.
The adults could relax by taking in a massage or be entertained by having their fortune told.
The day proved lucky for the two winners of the main raffle prizes (limousine trips) which were donated by Porty Planet.
Once again POD were indebted to the volunteers who helped on the day to make the Porty Party a success. The POD committee would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the local businesses who made this possible through sponsorship.
