Hollywood Fair gears up for world record bid

Jack Keenaghan and John McCann at the Hollywood Fair Fashion Show

Demand for flat caps is set to go through the roof this weekend as Hollywood Fair bids to break the Guinness World Record for the largest number of caipín wearers in one location.

This year the organisers ambitious plans have led to call for all volunteers to gather at 3pm on Sunday in the West Wicklow village.

This is one of the many events planned for the annual fair.

Events include the Junk Couture fashion display, set dancing in the GAA clubhouse, Songs of 1916 with BME Singers in the Céilí House, photographic exhibitions, Latin Mass preceded by a procession, and a high nellie race.

The Fair Book is also on Sale. See wwwthehollywoodfair.com for the full list of events and activities.
