BELFAST’S biggest Halloween event will take place on Saturday October 31 at the Titanic Slipways and is promising a rocking’ good time.
This year’s theme is ‘Carnival Rock’ and the annual Monster Mash will take place from 4pm -7pm with support from media partner Q Belfast’s City Beat. Monsters and ghouls of all ages can come along in their show-stopping scary rock outfits for a chance to win fang-tastic prizes for the best fancy dress costumes.
In addition to this, visitors can look forward to carnival-esque activities including street walkabouts and shows, workshops, ghost tales, trick-or-treat games, fire shows, jugglers and fairground rides. The evening will close with the largest fireworks display in Belfast, beginning at approximately 6.45pm.
Q Belfast’s City Beat presenters’ Stephen Clements and Cate Conway are set to host an on stage roadshow with live music from Northern Irish band ‘The Professionals’ and there will be a range of hot food, soft drinks, sweets and Halloween fancy goods available to buy on site.
Launching the event at Titanic Belfast, Lord Mayor Councillor Arder Carson said: “The Halloween Monster Mash is one of the highlights of our events calendar and like previous years, it will not disappoint.”
Free ‘ghost shuttle buses’ will be available and will depart from Chichester Street every 15 minutes from 3.45pm-6.15pm, dropping visitors off on Queen’s Road. The last bus will leave Queen’s Road at Titanic Belfast at around 7.30pm.
