Parade and fireworks display to finish off Spraoi 2022 in Waterford!

The parade and fireworks display will be the highlights on the final day of Spraoi 2022.

The festival of free concerts, performances, and other events made its grand return on Friday, after a Covid-caused absence for the last two years.

A fantastic buzz has been reported around the city, and yesterday's rain wasn't dampening spirits either!

This man, Brian, spoke to WLR reporter, Jayde Maher who has been out and about talking to people about the festival:


Today, there's plenty going on.

'Messrs Smiley and Veneer' are putting on perhaps one of the more unusual shows.


Samuel Veneer has also been speaking to Jayde:

They're performing on John Robert's Square at 3pm and again at 4.30pm today.

The big finale of this year's Spraoi begins at 9.30pm tonight!

The parade will start in Johnstown before travelling down Parnell Street, the Mall, and on to their final destination at the blue crane on the Quay.

That's expected to take around an hour in total and it's then that the fireworks display will begin.

The 'Pyrofantasia Fireworks' event is scheduled for 10.45pm at the Quay and it promises to be an exciting display and a fitting end to Spraoi 2022.
