Ballina’s spectacular Fireworks Display has always brought to a close a hugely anticipated week of family fun, crazy antics and generally brilliant entertainment that is the Ballina Salmon Festival.
The striking display of bright colours exploding in the night sky above the River Moy with the Cathedral as it’s backdrop has always captured both the awe and delight of the young and old.
The Firework Display, which is the largest in Connaught, draws
people from far and near to view its spectacular display. Strong
attendance at this event proves a fantastic family night out that does
not disappoint - year after year!
