The Halloween Fancy Dress Parade in Ballycastle will be just as popular as ever this year and Moyle District Council will offer prizes for the best fancy dress costumes (including adults!). £100 prize is available for the best group, £50 for best adult and there are two £25 Junior prizes.

The Arts programme at the Council encourages community and sports groups, businesses, schools, families and individuals to come up with original and creative fancy dress ideas. Can you come up with the best weird and wonderful large figure or hand- pushed contraption in the parade? The judging is at Dalriada Hospital Lower car park at 7pm on Friday 31st October. The procession then makes its way through the town before the fireworks display.

The Arts Officer for Moyle District Council said: “We hope as many people as possible will get involved by making their own fancy dress, or their very own ghostly mini-float! Anything like an old bicycle, tricycle, buggy, pram or golf trolley can be decorated to look good in the Halloween Parade this year.”

If you would like to have a go at joining in , please contact the Arts Officer, Moyle District Council on 028 207 62225.
