Mardi Gras & Fireworks Extravaganza at Ballina Salmon Festival


Enjoy an incredible explosion of colour, Latin rhythms, street theatre and dance at the electrifying Mardi Gras & Fireworks Spectacular at Ballina Salmon Festival.

The climax of “festival week”, watch the streets become a colourful riot of music, costume and dance.

Snaking through the town, magnificent floats bring mythical, fantastical creatures to life in a heaving procession of drumbeats and samba sounds, before proceeding to the River Moy for the customary fireworks spectacular.

Each year, the display gets bigger and better. The sight of the night sky blazing and bursting with colour against the backdrop of majestic St. Muredach’s Cathedral never fails to draw gasps from the huge crowds.
