A council ‘spooks’person said: “The fangtastic Halloween Spooktacular at The Junction on Thursday 25 October, from 6pm – 8pm, is the perfect place to kick off your Halloween festivities.

“Join us and Q Radio for lots of spooky goings on and a spooktacular fireworks display* at 8pm. This event is jointly organised by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and The Junction.

“Prepare to be Spooked Out at V36 on Wednesday 31 October from 6pm – 8pm. Dust the cobwebs off your favourite fancy dress outfit and join Cool FM’s Rebecca McKinney for spooky fun and frolics for all the family. The firework* finale will take place at 8pm to bring a spine tingling close to the event for 2018.

“Screams and Tricks at V36 will also give you a fright from Friday 26 October until Wednesday 31 October. There are plenty of fun fair attractions to keep all monsters entertained.
