Over 5,000 people flocked to the Grange Park in Omagh on Saturday 22 June 2019 for Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s free family fun day – GrangeFest.

The event which featured music, dance, singing, arts, sports and more included performances from Moana and Little Mermaid, Mr Magic and Oscar the Magic Monkey, Dance Revelation, Babcock and Bobbins Juggling Act and the Good Relations Music and Dance Project.

Visitors also had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beautiful open spaces, play park and outdoor gym.

T-Rex ‘Jay’ and his little sister ‘Roxie’ wowed crowds as they roared and stomped around the park. Kite making, an inflatable dartsboard, climbing wall, hula hooping and cage soccer were also on offer on the day as well as activities for young children from LAST Sure Start and Omagh Early Years plus face painting and balloon modelling with Duff Balloons.
