The town of Youghal was chosen by John Huston in the 1950′s to film Moby Dick, because it was scenically similar to New Bedford in the late 1880’s.

The festivities start this Friday at 7:30 p.m. with a sea creature parade. This entertainment is free. Two days of family fun with loads to do will follow, including treasure hunts, crab fishing, weird & wacky games, belt the fisherman, music, storytelling, an outdoor market in Barry’s Lane on Saturday and much more!
