Derry City and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) said they wanted the event to be a cross community, family-focused celebration. The council has confirmed "flags and emblems" will not feature this year.

About £30,000 of funding has been allocated to the Strabane parade that will follow a shorter route than in previous years.

The council was delighted to "support the extension of the St Patrick's Day Carnival festivities in Strabane", said a DCSDC spokeswoman.

She said the plans were in line with a paper approved by the council's Business and Culture committee.

"Council is committed to promoting inclusion and integration within and between communities in all its activities, events and programmes."
