Alex Easton MLA is delighted at the huge turnout for the 12th in Bangor .

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I have spoken with the PSNI and they have estimated that between 60,000 to 70,000 people lined the streets of Bangor to watch this year’s 12th of July celebrations in Bangor. I am delighted at such a huge turnout, which in my time in the Orange Order is a record turnout. The weather was fantastic and the celebrations proved such a success. Everyone joined in with a family day out by celebrating our culture and tradition which is no threat to anyone. I would congratulate and thank all the organisers, PSNI, Council, Bands and the Orange Order for putting on and facilitating such a fantastic event for all.”
