Police have advised that traffic congestion is to be expected in Enniskillen tonight (Friday) due to the 37th annual Erne Vintage Car Club parade.
The town centre will be closing at 6.30pm and reopening at 10pm to allow for the parade of vintage vehicles and bands.
In support of the local Fermanagh branch of the NSPCC, there will be entertainment at The Diamond from 6.30pm to 8.30pm including face painters, balloon modelling, cartoon characters and much more for all of the family to enjoy.
The main parade will commence at 7.30pm and will include veteran vintage, classic cars, vans, motorcycles, tractors and commercial vehicles. Pride of place will be given to the pre-war cars that will travel at their leisure through the town before the main parade commences at 8pm. This will ensure the older cars have an unhindered run.
The PSNI have advised that Belfast traffic travelling to Co Donegal and Belleek were possible should use Wellington Road. A local diversion will be in place. The parade will be contained within the loop of town centre and Queen Elizabeth Road and Forthill Street area.
From 12pm on Saturday there will be a display of Vintage Cars on The Diamond, a street collection and a car packed full of balloons will be there for everyone to have a guess of how many balloons are in it.
