St Patrick’s Day in Enniskillen
Fermanagh’s St Patrick’s Day Parade and Fun Day returns to Enniskillen on Tuesday 17th March! The streets of our county town will be transformed with colour, music and dancing as we celebrate this year’s theme: 20/20 Vision: Future, Space & Science
The craic starts at the Broadmeadow with a free family fun day and a host of live entertainment acts starting at 1.30pm with the Hand Me Downs. Enjoy a range of free activities including bouncy castles, face painting and wandering mascots including the opportunity to meet Trex the interactive Dinosaur! Enjoy free tasty treats with chocolate fountains, green candy floss and famous themed gelato all generously sponsored by Lilley’s Centra & PSP.
For those wishing to grab a prime viewing position there will be live music, pre parade on the Diamond in Enniskillen town centre, by Full Moon Fever from 2pm as well as walkabout characters to keep you entertained. Take time too, to view the entries to our children’s Vision 20:20 Arts & Photo Competition in the Legion while enjoying traditional music and dancing.
Supported by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Enniskillen BID and local businesses, this year’s spectacular parade is one not to be missed. Led off at 3.30pm by 2020 Grand Marshalls; OMG Foundation, the parade features a traditional and carnival style floats, vintage vehicles, acrobatics, live music and much, much more. Check out last year’s wildly popular Curragh experience and other water activities that make celebrating St Patrick’s Day in Ireland’s Only Island Town, a unique experience.
Given the ‘visionary’ theme of this year and thanks to Balcas Energy, there will be giveaways on the day that will help us bigger kids see the future more brightly…
Brought to you by a very small team of PSP volunteers for the 9th year, you can keep up to date on everything on our facebook page including details of fringe events on St Patrick’s eve; not to mention a magical and much anticipated illuminated flotilla by Inland Waterways Association Ireland.
*There maybe traffic disruptions in the immediate area so please plan your parking ahead as there will be no entrance to the Lakeland Forum except for disabled badge holders. Additional disabled parking behind the Townhall. We would appeal to drivers to respect the efforts of our volunteers and not to park on the parade route for safety reasons.
