Imagine merry picnickers; laughing friends and family; green lawn rolling to the lake edge; the warm colours of autumn framing views to the blue mountain ranges.
Add to this kite flying and a Teddy Bear's Picnic - what a perfect autumn family day out!
This is Killarney Picnic Basket Day.
And what lovelier spot for the event than the beautiful gardens of Melrose Station, renowned across the region and previously featured in the Open Gardens scheme.
Visitors are invited to bring their picnic blanket and chairs and set up a spot in the grounds.
Bring your own picnic lunch or buy a delicious picnic lunch and afternoon tea, prepared and sold by local volunteers.
A bar will be in operation and local musicians will provide entertainment. In keeping with the picnic basket theme, gourmet picnic baskets featuring local goodies will be raffled during the day.
The event is a fundraiser for LIVIN – a charity who use apparel, events and motivational programs to get people talking about mental health and suicide prevention.
