Although the revelers were prepared with rubber boots and rain jackets, the first two days of the National Plowing Championships saw blue skies and sunshine.
With over 100,000 people expected at the site in Ratheniska, Co. Laois today, the weather has not been so favorable as it has been raining heavily since this morning.
If you’re plowing today and looking for a break from the mud, here are some fun things to do:
1. Video of you dancing at the TikTok booth
For the first time ever, TikTok is attending the National Plowing Championships.
In the Tigh TikTok tent at booth 425, people can learn how TikTok works to foster a safe and positive experience for its community. There will also be some exciting photo and video opportunities and some well-known creators will be in attendance – so why not whip out your phone and try your hand at a TikTok dance?!
2. Get style tips at the fashion show
Although plowing is associated with wellies and casual wear, there’s definitely still room for a bit of style.
If you are looking for inspiration for the upcoming autumn/winter season, be sure to visit the fashion show taking place today at 3:30 p.m. at stand 608.
3. Find out who makes the best brown bread at the Aldi stand
During the three days of plowing, Aldi worked hard to find the person in Ireland who makes the best brown bread.
So who needs to see the Great British Bake Off when you can see an Irish version live today?
Visit the Aldi tent at Stand 397 at 2:30pm today to see who will be crowned the winner of the National Brown Bread Baking final.
4. Have a boogie at the bandstand
If you’re looking for a drink and a boogie, there’s no better place than the bandstand, located at booth 605.
Practiced on the ceili with Maureen Culleton today at 3pm with music by Ruaidhri Tierney and Bill O’Brien
5. Listen to a live podcast in the Irish Independent tent
If you want to avoid the rain, there’s no better place than the Irish Independent’s tent at row 14, stand 22.
You can stay dry and warm while listening to some of your favorite live podcasts, and when you buy a newspaper, you get a free tote bag!
