A creepy mist hovered over Enniskillen town as thousands of revellers congregated in the Broadmeadow for the 5th annual Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Hallowe’en Fireworks Spectacular on Hallowe’en night.

Given that 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first man to set foot on the moon, this year’s spectacular theme was Space Age. The rainy weather did not deter revellers as many embraced the Space Age theme and donned costumes ranging from Buzz Lightyear to Darth Vader with a few traditional Hallowe’en characters making an appearance too.

The events included a varied programme of Hallowe’en games and fancy dress prizes, hula hoop competitions, extra-terrestrial stilt walkers, cosmic characters, music and stage performances.

The cast of Enniskillen Light Operatic performed excerpts from their forthcoming production of the Addams Family Musical at the Broadmeadow.

This was followed by the wonderfully illuminated boats of the Waterways Ireland flotilla which circled the Castle Island.

The Space Age festivities culminated in a spectacular fireworks display which delighted the huge crowds in attendance.

Every vantage point was taken as the skies above Castle Island were lit up with the colourful fireworks which were accompanied by an out-of-this-world soundtrack featuring David Bowie’s ‘Starman’ and Frank Sinatra’s ‘Fly Me To The Moon’.

Council Vice Chair, Councillor Diana Armstrong led the countdowns to the fireworks displays in Enniskillen.

The events have grown in creativity and size each year with more visitors and local people attending to enjoy the Halloween Fireworks events across the district.

The Council would like to extend its appreciation to its partners in Enniskillen, Waterways Ireland and Enniskillen Bid, for their support in delivering such a successful high-quality evening of family entertainment on Hallowe’en night.
