Thousands of people flocked to Sligo town centre on Friday and Saturday last to join in the festivities of the Sligo 400 celebrations.
The focal point of the celebrations were two outdoor concerts in Wine Street Car Park. on the Friday night, headliner Bressie filled the car park as fans spilled across the bridge and on to rockwood Parade to get a glimpse of the rocker in action.
On Saturday evening, a great lineup headlined by Galway band The Saw Doctors brought even bigger crowds to the centre of the town on what turned out to be the last two sunny days before the weather broke on Sunday.
Elsewhere on Saturday the North West Pride Parade added a carnival feel to the occasion and o’Connell Street was closed to traffic as street performers and musicians mingled with the great crowds.
The Mall was transformed into a racing circuit for the Sligo 400 Soapbox race, with some well engineered (and some less well engineered) vehicles taking to the hill to set the fastest time.
Kalem regan from Ward Automation guided his racer down the street the quickest (and did it while wearing a spiderman outfit too) to receive the Summer Festival Cup from the Mayor of Sligo Cllr David Cawley.
Earlier in the day 80 swimmers took to the water at Parkes Castle and emerged wet and exhausted 10k later on the other side at Doorly Park. robert Smith was the first out of the water.
