The Teddy Bears’ Picnic will take place again this year, in Blackrock Park on this coming Sunday the 3rd of July, from 1 to 5pm
This year, a record number of people and teddy bears is expected in Blackrock Park for one of Ireland’s biggest Teddy Bears’ Picnics. DLR Events Summer Season invites young and old alike to bring their bears and blankets to the Teddy Bears’ Picnic .
This celebration of the Teddy Bear for all the family will feature Doctor Ted and Teddy Bears’ Hospital for minor repairs and health checks to give ailing Teddy Bears a clean bill of health. There will also be a DJ, face painting, bouncy castles and inflatable games for all ages, as well as entertainment on the Lake Stage, a ‘make & do’ area and, of course, picnic facilities with goodies galore.
The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is a free event but everyone should bring a Teddy Bear to get into the picnic and partake in the event. The DLR sports department will also be on hand with plenty of games to try and lots of fun in the park with running, jumping and throwing. Last year, the Teddy Bears’ Picnic in Blackrock Park was a huge success and thousands of people and teddy bears of all shapes and sizes attended making it one of the largest Teddy Bears’ Picnics in Ireland.
