Halloween events announced across Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough
Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council have announced a number of spookily wonderful events set to take place as we near Halloween.
‘Spooked Out’ returns to V36 this Halloween, on Sunday 31 October from 6-8pm. If you’re brave enough, you can enjoy a line-up of ghoulish delights including a Cool FM roadshow, fancy dress competition, fire performers, bubble bikes, Halloween characters and a firework finale.
Tickets for this epic evening are available from Friday 1 October from 10am. Whilst the ‘Spooked Out’ event is free, a booking fee of £1.25 is applied to each ticket with all proceeds being donated to the Mayor’s charities.
More ‘trick or treat’ fun is happening throughout the Borough with the Pumpkin Patch at Threemilewater Park on Saturday 30 October from 10am-4pm (hourly sessions from 10am-3pm) which will be fantastic family time to get creative and carve your best pumpkin!
For the more daring amongst us, there is also a chance to have the fright of your life at the Ghoulish Night Walks at the iconic Mossley Mill on Friday 22 and Thursday 28 October and Antrim Castle Gardens on the 27 and 29 October every hour from 6pm-8pm. This eerie setting is the perfect backdrop as you will be guided through the past with stories of ghosts, ghouls and everything in-between that still walk the grounds.
The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb said:
“I am thrilled at the fantastic line up of events happening over Halloween for all to enjoy. I would love to see the community come and enjoy all the ‘fabulously frightening’ things lined up as there is plenty for all ages, and what an amazing way to finish it off with a bang with a firework finale at the ‘Spooked Out’ event.”
