Council postpones annual Festival of Flame due to Covid19 pandemic

September 29, 2020 0

Fingal County Council has taken the decision to postpone the annual Festival of Flame at Halloween in light of the ongoing uncertainty due to the Covid19 pandemic. The festival, held annually to celebrate Halloween and always one of the most popular events in the calendar, was due to take place at 13 different locations around the County.

Adhering to public health guidelines and ensuring physical distancing is maintained must remain a priority, and with this in mind the Council has regretfully taken the decision to postpone this year’s events.

Despite the disappointment, the Council’s Events team are planning to return with a bang when the restrictions have eased and are hoping to hold a fireworks-themed event at a later date, so watch this space for further details.

But until then, they are reminding everyone to stay safe and follow advice from the Government and HSE in relation to wearing of facemasks, handwashing, physical distancing and reducing social contacts. Stay Safe.
