Halloween Spooktacular Underway In City Centre


Share this article


A major Halloween community festival is underway in the north inner-city.

Hundreds of local families are attending the event based on Killarney, Sean MacDermott and Buckingham Streets.

'The Big Scream' is organised by Dublin City Council.

It'll see Sean MacDermott and Killarney Streets pedestrianised for the duration.

The event is celebrating the area's links with 'Dracula' creator Bram Stoker.

A parade of up to 80 small children wearing Dracula capes and carrying glow sticks is marching on Killarney Street accompanied by the Garda Band.

The traffic on Amiens Street is giving way to the children, as they walk down onto Buckingham Street.

The Halloween Spooktacular on Sean MacDermott and Killarney Streets includes fairground attractions and rides, hand-made decorations and a main stage - where the children will be greeted by Dracula himself.

Two haunted houses will also be open to the public, including the Bram Stoker house - where a plaque was laid to the author last week to mark the six years he lived on Buckingham Street.

A 'Love at First Bite' Dracula wedding party will welcome people onto the street, entertain with fire eating and encourage both young and old to get into the 'spirit' of Halloween.

There is also a free fireworks display at Balbriggan Harbour in Fingal from 7.30 pm.
