Huge crowds are set to enjoy a unique children’s Spooks Parade and family fun day to kick off the Halloween season at Parkway Retail Park on Thursday, October 29.
Led by Count Dracula, local kids will go store to store on a spooky adventure, trick or treating staff and customers alike.
As well as Count Dracula and his spooky entourage, kids will be entertained by magicians, jugglers and face painters with a Halloween DJ providing suitable ghoulish tunes.
Children and adults attending the Spooks Parade are encouraged to get into the Halloween spirit and don their best costume at Parkway Retail Park on the Dublin Road.
The parade will get under way at 4.30pm, but families are encouraged to get there early to meet the characters and get their face paint ready.
Car parking, including disabled car parking spaces, will be available at Parkway Retail Park.
“This event is a great opportunity for kids to go trick or treating in safety, and have a great time doing it,” said Pat Naughton, Site Manager, Parkway Retail Park.
“Our store managers and staff are looking forward to welcoming the spooks parade on Thursday, and each store will have a selection of goodies and sweets.
“This is our first major seasonal event at Parkway Retail Park and we are looking forward to hosting more family events into the festive period.”
The event follows on from the successful family fun day that marked the opening of the Toys”R”Us store at the Park recently.
