Hallowe’en extravaganza for Omagh town

An evening of Hallowe’en festivities will take place at the OASIS Plaza, Omagh on Saturday 31 October 2015.

Organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, the ‘Hallowe’en Comes to Town’ event will feature a programme of fang-tastic entertainment, including Spooktacular street entertainment, fire jugglers and creepy characters, from 6 pm.

There will also be song, dance, drama, music, face painting plus much more. The spectacular pyrotechnics fireworks display will be launched from Strule Arts Centre roof top at 7.30 pm with a designated viewing area at the OASIS Plaza.

Speaking about the forthcoming ‘Hallowe’en Comes to Town’ event at the OASIS Plaza, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:

“This is the first major Council-organised event to have been hosted at the OASIS Plaza, which I had the honour of officially opening earlier this year. I am delighted that our Hallowe’en activities are truly taking place in the heart of Omagh this year.

The ‘Hallowe’en Comes to Town’ event is an annual highlight for many. With an evening of thrilling entertainment at the OASIS Plaza and the spectacular fireworks display to launch from the roof top of Strule Arts Centre at 7.30pm, this year’s event is one not to be missed.”

Children and adults attending the ‘Hallowe’en Comes to Town’ event are encouraged to get into the Hallowe’en spirit and to don their best costume. Spot prizes for fancy dress will be awarded throughout the evening.

Limited car parking, including disabled car parking spaces, will be available at the OASIS Plaza.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will be working with the PSNI and Event Stewards to coordinate arrangement and minimise disruption.
