Summer Family Fun Day with Bon Secours

Posted in Blog on 6th July 2017

We had another amazing Family Fun Day on Sunday the 19th of June at The Radisson St Helens Hotel in Stillorgan for our client Bon Secours. This corporate family fun day was for a group for 500 staff members and their children. The weather was on our side last Sunday with temperatures rising to 30 degrees! We couldn’t have asked for better weather and it really made the day.

Our guests started arriving for the Family Fun Day at 12pm and we had two stilt walkers greeting people which added to the carnival/summer theme that the client was looking for. After guests were checked in at our registration desk the family fun activities began. We had a huge range of  family fun activities going on through out the day to keep both children and adults entertained.

We had three brilliant children’s magic/puppet shows running through out the day. They were a big hit with the children and their parents. The shows were set up in the lovely Pembroke Suite which gave the kids a much needed break from the sun. We also had walkabout magicians and characters walking around outside engaging with the guests both big and small. A range of bouncing castles and inflatables, a chill out area and a soft play area for younger children was also set up outside to keep the guests entertained.

Through out the Family Fun Day we had loads of competitions running such as giant darts, table tennis, smoothie bikes (the team had to make a smoothie in the quickest time possible), relay races, basketball hoops, pillow bash and tug of war! Family Fun Workshops also went on through out the day including a circus skills workshop. Prizes were presented to all the winners including one for the best Summer outfit!

The Radisson provided a delicious BBQ for the Family Fun Day with everything from pulled pork burgers, to salads to child friendly food options so there was plenty on offer. We also organised a vintage ice-cream bike, a colourful popcorn stand, smoothie bikes, a circus style candyfloss machine and a ginger bread house full of sweets which as you can imagine went down a treat which our younger guests! Our food carts really added to the visual impact of the carnival themed family fun day along with colourful bunches of balloons, ribbon streamers, festival bunting, brightly coloured flags and lanterns which really tied the whole Summer Family Fun event together.

We would like to thank all the staff at the Radisson who couldn’t have been more helpful on the day and extremely accommodating. We would also like to thank our client Bon Secours. They were a fantastic group, full of enthusiasm and fun which really made the event! We look forward to our next company event with you.
