HALLOWENA | The scariest night of the year at People’s Park Ballymena


People’s Park, Ballymena will host one of the scariest nights of the year tonight, Friday 29 October from 6pm to 8.30pm.


The free event, organised by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, will thrill and chill with a packed programme of spooktacular activities for your little monsters to enjoy, with a huge walking dragon, fire juggling display, a fancy dress competition, a kiddies funfair, live music from The VIPs and a spooky illumination trail.



You can sink your fangs into some sweet treats or tasty hot food to beat those Halloween hunger pangs, while the fun and festivities will finish with a fangtastic fireworks finale at 8.15pm.



Why not have your own #MEAdventure in the park? Outdoor areas including the brand new play equipment will be accessible during the event and there will be a free kiddies fun fair to entertain your little terrors. Wandering ghouls and spine tingling figures will be ready to spook you at every turn with a few hair-raising special additions.


Follow the extended spooky illumination trail throughout the park and bump into some familiar characters along the way!



There are over 2000 off-street car park spaces within a 10-minute walk of People’s Park so make an evening of it with a visit to any of the fantastic shops or restaurants in the town.


Parking for blue badge holders is available from 6pm at the People’s Park council car park off the Ballymoney Road.

To help with a safe set-up of the site People’s Park will be closed to all members of the public today, Friday 29 October, until the event starts at 6pm.
