This evening marks the launch of the first public event in the Ballina 2023 calendar.
Mise en Lumieres is an adapted audiovisual light installation, created by a French artistic collective ENTER.black.
The event will be attended by notable figures such as the French Ambassador to Ireland and the Cultural Counsellor at the French Embassy as well as residents from Athis-Mons, Ballina's twin town in France.
The event will be on display from 6 o'clock until 10 o'clock from tonight until Saturday.
