Also this success could also be felt over at Monster Halloween Funfair which closed for the last time on Sunday 5th November.
But now looking at the future of Ebrington Square as its seems such a waste for the land to lay empty for most of the year apart from odd music or events that take place in the square.
So is it time to make a decision on the future of Ebrington ?
Could a more frequent or permanent carnival of events similar to The Monster Funfair over Halloween work for the square?
As it certainly stands the square throughout the winter months will remain vacant and this could also boost tourism and brighten up the square as we don't want another blight on our riverfront.
Just looking across the Peace bridge it certainly brightens up the area from the pictures we took over the weekend as everyone including us feel a certain downer every year when The Funfair and Big Wheel leaves town. As aftermath of that Ebrington Square just looks like a vacant land with nothing to offer anybody.
So is it time for change over at Ebrington Square ?
we look at other seaside towns across Northern Ireland or wherever you like to visit during the holidays and we see it works for other towns that has a river front. So just thinking about locals suggesting "lets go to Barry's In Portrush" instead we should be saying we wanna head over to Ebrington Square instead and see what they got to offer if that would be a funfair or something similar.
A future investment for Ebrington Square?
We understand that this couldn't be done overnight and currently the grounds is run by The Executive Office at Stormont since taken over from Ilex a few years ago but since then it has been attracting less events or investment within the square. The local government probably would want to see a more permanent tenant on site but sometimes its not possible as for instance Cullen's Amusements would have to subsidise the site for all year round even during low peak season and it wouldn't make money during winter months.
In the past we had Ice skating and plenty of other events taken place in Ebrington but in more recent times that has seemed to decline and we would like to see more done with Ebrington Square.
