Sunday 25th July to 2nd August marks the dates for the 2010 Howya Festival in Durrow, Co. Laois. The event is otherwise known as the Festival of Friendships. This year the event is incorporating the inaugural All Ireland Scarecrow Championships.
The festival has events running for both adults and children, with sports tournaments, a fun duck derby, table quizes, nostalgia nights, comedians, dances on the green for charity, the famous Crystal Swing band playing and a Wild West night amongst other fun things.
Grab some friends and head along, and if you decide a costume is needed, of course you can get Cowboy costumes and accessories and anything else you need from TheCostumeShop.ie!
