The theme of this year's Rushmere Shopping Centre carnival parade was "Over us All is the SElfsame Sky" (OASES).

This event was organised by Craigavon Borough Council.

The Armagh Rhymers and astronomer Miruna Popescu from Armagh Observatory, along with artists and Craigavon Council workers, and children and young people from Craigavon Community Centres have entertained thousands of people with face astronomy-inspired painting, music and dance performances.

The spectacular event finished off with an impressive extraterrestrial fireworks display at the Craigavon Watersports Centre.

This  project is part-funded through the EU's PEACE III Programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
