Pict: Dunnes Stores
OK, I’m going to admit it. I have never been to a festival. Not ever. I’m not sure they’re really me – I hate camping! I’m much more of a boutique hotel and city break type of girl.
But, the weirdest thing has happened. I am desperate to go to one this summer with Miss Marnie…
But, the fact is this summer’s line up sounds so darn good. From TV personalities to play areas and farms – these family friendly festivals have made me sit up and take notice – I may well be missing out on some serious fun.
And, of course we know it’s all about the festival fashion!
I have yet to discover the wonders of wellies, fringing, face paint and dry shampoo. But, for the little ones these finds are perfect for any festival or even just at your own party in the park.
