Halloween Spooktacular at The Junction!

09 October 2018


The Mayor, Councillor Paul Michael, launches Spooktacular at The Junction with Emillie Murphy, Leona Barr (Centre Manager) and a spooky character.

Dust the cobwebs off your broomsticks and join Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, for the annual Halloween Spooktacular at The Junction on Thursday 25 October from 6pm – 8pm.

The thrilling scarefest kicks off at 6pm with Stephen Clements, Cate Conway and the Q Radio roadshow. This year’s theme is Day of the Dead and your little ghosts, goblins and ghouls are invited to come along in their scariest costumes for the fancy dress competition at 7pm. There are some fangtastic prizes up for grabs!

Be amazed by the UK’s mesmerising illuminated street-theatre show SPARK! as they return again this year, due to popular demand! Have a shriek of a time on the spooky ghost train and feel the warmth from our fire performers. You can also get crafty with our special Halloween arts and crafts, funded by The Executive Office. If all this fun is not enough, a spectacular fireworks display at 8pm, is sure to light up the night sky and finish the night with a bang!

This event is jointly organised by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and The Junction. Car parking, including accessible parking for blue badge holders, is available at The Junction. For adults and children with specific needs at the Spooktacular, there will be a Mobiloo, sign language provision, quiet space and an accessible viewing point in front of stage.

Additional car parking is available at Antrim Civic Centre, Dunsilly Park & Ride and Antrim Town Centre.  A free shuttle bus will operate from Market Square & Dunsilly Park & Ride only, at regular intervals and after the fireworks.  Access to the event is by Ballymena Road Entrance only.

Please note that the fireworks will be subject to weather conditions.
