Do you dare to enjoy a scare this Halloween in Causeway Coast and Glens?

We’ll be celebrating the spooky season across the Borough with free events and firework displays taking place in Ballymoney (Thursday 27th October), Limavady (Friday 28th October), Coleraine (Saturday 29th October) and Ballycastle (Monday 31st October) from 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

This year, the ever-popular fancy-dress parades will make a welcome return to Ballymoney (assemble at Castlecroft from 6pm) and Ballycastle (assemble at Dalriada Lower Car Park from 6pm), so plan your craziest costumes and join us for this frightfully fun experience.

The spookiest styles will be rewarded at all four locations with prizes to be won in two age categories (0-5 and 6-11) for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Looking ahead to what’s on offer, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Ivor Wallace said: “Our Halloween Happenings have always proven to be very popular, and I know there will be lots of excitement at the prospect of what’s in store in this year.
