Space Age Halloween to be out of this world

9th October 2019

Halloween in Enniskillen will be out of this world with Fermanagh and Omagh District Council launching details of this year’s ‘Space Age Halloween’ themed event.

With 2019 marking 50 years since man first set foot on the moon, Enniskillen is on T-Minus countdown for this year’s event taking place on Thursday 31 October 2019.

The Council, in partnership with Enniskillen Business Investment District and Waterways Ireland will showcase an evening of family fun and entertainment. From 6pm, the Broadmeadow, Enniskillen will host a range of entertainment including a Space Age Halloween fancy dress party, games and music from the mysterious DJ all while keeping an eye out for space age characters as they wander around the Broadmeadow.

The Events space will be bustling with traders providing a range of hot food, drinks along with games and activities, and Bells amusements will be in the Lakeland forum car park for fun rides and activities for all the family. Also, the flotilla will be back for a second year travelling around the Castle Island.

People are encouraged to embrace this year’s Space Age theme by dressing up as their favourite space age or out of this world characters.

The spectacular fireworks display will launch from the Castle Island at 8.00pm. Public can view the fireworks from the historic castle grounds in the Cosmic Castle Look-out!! Limited free tickets available through the October Space Programme. For further information visit www.enniskillencastle.co.uk or contact 028 66 325000.
