Here comes the summer – Newton Abbot gears up for Party in the Park ’24!

ALL roads will lead to Courtenay Park throughout the weekend of July 13 – 14 when Party in the Park comes to Newton Abbot.

The two days of affordable family fun will kick off with the gruelling Rotary Club wheelbarrow race, the dramatic Taiko Drummers plus performances from the Shining Stars Academy and Newton Abbot Martial Arts.

Trade and charity stalls will be accompanied by a paid-for bouncy castle and although everyone is encouraged to bring picnics, those wanting something extra can take advantage of the food and drink stalls.

On Sunday families will be able to enjoy free live music, balloon modelling, face-painting and a hula hoop show.

There will also be free activities from Creative Newton Abbot and the Bubble Fairy plus, for those wanting to splash out a little, there will be a cocktail bar, ice cream van and coffee truck

Saturday’s fun and games will take place 10am – 4pm and Sunday’s 11am – 4.30pm.

The first day is being organised by the Rotary Club of Newton Abbot and the second by Newton Abbot Town Council whose Events Coordinator Natalie Hicks said: ‘We’re so excited about Party in the Park and cannot thank Rotary enough for what they’re doing.

‘Their members are utterly dedicated to supporting the community so we know it’s going to be a brilliant day.

‘On Sunday the town council will be taking the lead with plenty of free activities and for both days there’ll be no need to book places or buy tickets, just turn up and enjoy the party.

‘It’s so important to us that as the summer gets properly under way, we provide some really good and properly affordable family fun.

‘Unless people wish to take advantage of the bouncy castle or caterers, there’ll be absolutely no need to put their hands in their pockets, just relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

‘So get the dates in your diary, Party in the Park is coming to Newton Abbot July 13 – 14.

‘See you there!’
