Fun and Frolics for all in Enniskillen

23rd July 2018

It will be ‘Hats off to the Forthill’ on Friday 27 July 2018 when the historic Forthill Park in Enniskillen hosts an afternoon of free family fun and entertainment from 2.00 pm to 5.00 pm.

This popular annual event, organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council with support from The Executive Office, will feature a range of free family activities including face painting, balloon modelling and rope-making. Cathy McGovern will provide musical entertainment from the bandstand while Music Box will provide music and movement for toddlers throughout the afternoon. There will also be an opportunity to “have a go” at various sports.

Everyone attending the event is encouraged to pack a picnic basket, wear their favourite hat and spend the afternoon in one of the Council’s most popular public parks.

Visitors to Forthill Park will also have the opportunity to explore Coles Monument which will be open to the public especially for the day.

There will also be a range of free family activities such as slime making, balloon modelling and face painting taking place in the Diamond between 12 noon and 4.00 pm on the day to complement the Hats off to Forthill event. There will be cartoon walkabout characters in attendance also.

Admission to the event and its associated activities is free.
