Howlin to open festival with Mayor Carthy 25/10/15

| October 25, 2015

Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin TD, will officially open the Festival, alongside the Mayor of Wexford, Cllr. Ger Carthy, and Festival Chairman, Ger Lawlor, on Wexford’s quayside prior to the fireworks display..

Those attending the opening ceremony are advised to come early as traffic restrictions will be in place from 6pm to 9pm. Extra parking and stewards will also be on hand to assist.

There will be designated accessible parking spaces provided at the junction of Crescent Quay and Custom House Quay. An accessible viewing area for Blue Badge holders and their assistants will be provided close by Blue Badge holders need to be in the parking space before 6pm as the quay will be closed to traffic after that time.  A first aid centre will be located on the quay near end of the Bridge and the ‘lost child’ area will be at the back of the stage.

Those viewing the fireworks from Ferrybank are advised that there are a limited number of parking spaces available on the green area, but please note, access to Ferrybank quay will not be available as this is still a working Quay.

The organising committee would also like to remind people to park in designated carparks and not to obstruct traffic, as cars parked indiscriminately may be towed away and may result in a fine being imposed.
