St Patrick’s Day celebrations

ST PATRICK’S Day Parade and Fun Day returns to Enniskillen this Saturday, 17 March!
The streets of the county town will be transformed with colour and fun as this year’s theme is ‘Pages Through the Ages’. Last year over 8,000 turned out on the streets of Enniskillen to cheer the floats on.
The fun starts at the Broadmeadow with a free family fun day and a host of live entertainment acts starting at 1.30pm.
There is a range of free activities including bouncy castles, face painting and wandering mascots.
Everyone will be able to enjoy free tasty treats with chocolate fountains and green candy floss.
For those wishing to grab a prime viewing position there will be live music before the parade on the Diamond in Enniskillen town centre, by Full Moon Fever from 1.30pm as well as walkabout characters to keep you entertained.
The organisers are also hoping to broadcast audio coverage of the Six Nations rugby game from Twickenham between England and Ireland.
This year’s spectacular parade is one not to be missed. Kicking off at 3.30pm the parade features a processional sculpture, floats, vintage vehicles, acrobatics, live music and there will be a host of activities at the Broad Meadow.
It’s the eighth year of the parade in Enniksillen and Project St Patrick Publicity Offcer Roisin McManus said, “The theme for this year’s spectacle is ‘Books: Pages Thru the Ages’ and is very flexible theme.
“We trust it will only be limited by your own imagination, be it the classics of the past to comic books of the future. Even movie adaptations. It’s a simple theme to adapt and one we hope you will use to showcase your organisations to a 15,000 plus strong crowd.” she said.
