THE Maiden of the Mournes festival opened on Sunday in Warrenpoint.

A huge crowd came out to see the parade, which was a spectacle of colour and noise.

Amongst those in attendance was the Deputy Chairperson of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, Cllr Oksana McMahon.

As the week continues there will be lots to do in Warrenpoint, concluding on Sunday, August 19 when this year's Maiden will be crowned.

Don't miss next week's Democrat (out on Tuesday August 21) to see a round-up of events from across the week.
