See Fermanagh & Omagh in a new light this Christmas

18th November 2020

The festive season will officially begin in Fermanagh and Omagh this weekend with the launch of the ‘Christmas Lights Festival’.

Organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, the ‘Christmas Lights Festival’ will see the facades of a number of buildings across the district transformed with custom light displays and projections. There will also be the traditional Christmas lights displays in Enniskillen and Omagh as well as a festive programme of online activities and town centre entertainment taking place in the run up to Christmas.

Speaking about the ‘Christmas Lights Festival’, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Chris Smyth, said:

“While we are unable to hold our traditional Christmas Lights switch on and events programme at this time in the interest of public health and safety, the Council has developed an alternative Christmas programme to help spread some festive cheer, to enhance the visitor experience to our town centres and support local business and to create safe and positive ways for residents to experience Christmas across the district.

I encourage people to both enjoy the festivities and continue to show their support to local businesses this season while following public health guidance at all times.”

Christmas light displays and projections will illuminate buildings in Enniskillen, Omagh, Carrickmore, Dromore, Fintona, Irvinestown and Lisnaskea nightly from Saturday 21 November 2020 until Sunday 3 January 2021.
