MORE than 85,000 people are expected to visit Limerick over the May Bank Holiday for what is being tipped as the biggest and best Riverfest weekend ever.
Now heading into its fourteenth year, Riverfest 2018 is a carnival of activity and variety, all based around the great waters of the majestic Shannon.
“The continued development and investment in Riverfest shows Limerick’s desire to grow our visitor offering,” says Arts Officer with Limerick City and County Council, Sheila Deegan.
“Riverfest is one of the civic festivals delivered to bring the May Bank Holiday Weekend to life in the city and celebrate the river.”
Among the major new attractions this year will be the first visit to Ireland by the Seabreacher Shark – a daredevil ride all the way from Queenstown, New Zealand.
