WST Flash Mob Event


Saturday was host to the the WST Flash Mob, the main celebration for the European Mobility week, and over 600 people came to spectate and take part. At 2pm outside Westport Town Hall the roads were closed to traffic while 300 people of all ages joined in the WST ‘I like to Move it, Move it’ flash mob.


Westport Town Band and Mr. Whippy provided the music, Achilles Dance Initiative choreographed the moves and Irish TV & Michael McLaughlin studios filmed the event. After a wonderful 3 minutes of dancing well deserved refreshments were provided by Westport Smart Travel and Aunty Nellie's Sweet Shop. We will be repeating the ‘I like to Move it, Move it’ dance again on October 4th as part of Westport Art’s Festival. Join us at 3.45pm at the Sacred Heart School as we join the community parade through the town and finish on the Octagon and Move it, Move it.
