Don’t get spooked for car parking this Halloween at Carnfunnock

TICKETS to park at this weekend’s Halloween at Carnfunnock event are now sold out but don’t worry you can still make use of the free park and ride bus service kindly sponsored by Translink and Caterpillar on the day.

Fire Breathing Monsters brought to life while kings and knights of old fight to rule Carnfunnock, Larne this Halloween on Saturday 26 October from 2pm-6pm.

A mystical Dragon will be sweeping into Carnfunnock at 5.40pm for the lighting of a spectacular fire sculpture called “The Keep”, created by outdoor arts company Walk the Plank.

The Keep is a mysterious and foreboding Castle. What lies within? What secrets do these thick walls hold? Is it of this world or another? Is it real or is it magic? What is within?

Dare to go north of the walled garden to the Maze of Enchantment, enjoy a magical circus show, listen to spooky stories or create your own piece of Halloween art.

There will also be the chance to explore the park and meet some strange characters in a spooky walking trail!

Roll Up to the Big Top Tent where Peter Corry will be performing excerpts of his latest “The Showman is Coming” Show at 2pm,3pm,4pm and 5pm. Entry is first come first serve.

There will be owls, reptiles, arts and crafts, and lots of live music suitable for a real monster mash.

Come in disguise and take part in the fancy dress competition at 4.45pm in the Walled Garden. The competition is open to all ages.

Bring your Jack O lantern to help brighten up the afternoon and scare off the odd ghost! You can leave it for safekeeping with the Guardian of the Pumpkin Patch in the Walled Garden. The best lantern will win a prize.

Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Councillor Maureen Morrow, said: “One of the highlights of our Halloween celebrations will be the free event at Carnfunnock Country Park in Larne.

“It is sure to draw the crowds and promise a magical and memorable celebration for the whole family. We are delighted that CAT NI and Translink are sponsoring this year’s event.”

Spooky visitors of all ages are encouraged to use the free park and ride bus service sponsored by Translink and Caterpillar, which will run regularly from Caterpillar, Old Glenarm Road, Larne, between 1.30pm and 7pm. Another bus will be in operation from Larne Bus Depot at 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm. The last bus for this service will leave the park at 7pm.

Buses will also pick up from Ballygally, taking you straight into Carnfunnock Country Park. All buses are wheelchair and pram friendly.
