Huge crowds attend Space Age Halloween Fireworks Spectaculars in Omagh and Enniskillen
7th November 2019
Thousands of revellers turned out in Enniskillen and Omagh for the 5th annual Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Halloween Fireworks Spectacular which took place once again at the OASIS Plaza, Omagh and the Broadmeadow, Enniskillen.
This year’s spectacular had as its theme, appropriately, the Space Age given that 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first man to set foot on the moon.
The events included a varied programme of Halloween games and fancy dress prizes, hula hoop competitions, extra-terrestrial stilt walkers, cosmic characters, music and stage performances.
Dance Revelation wowed crowds on the OASIS Plaza and the cast of Enniskillen Light Operatic performed excerpts from their forthcoming production of the Addams Family Musical at the Broadmeadow. This was followed by the wonderfully illuminated boats of the Waterways Ireland flotilla which circled the Castle Island.
Both events culminated in spectacular fireworks displays much to the delight of the huge crowds in attendance at both locations. Every vantage point was taken as the skies above Strule Arts Centre and Castle Island lit up.
The Council Chair, Councillor Siobhán Currie and the Council Vice Chair, Councillor Diana Armstrong led the countdowns to the fireworks displays in Omagh and Enniskillen respectively.
The events have grown in creativity and size each year with more visitors and local people attending to enjoy the Halloween Fireworks events across the district.
The Council would like to extend its appreciation to its partners in Enniskillen, Waterways Ireland and Enniskillen Bid, for their support in delivering such a successful high-quality evening of family entertainment.
