A howling Halloween weekend!
Púca Spooka came to life in Lloyd Town Park when Tullamore Municipal District offered its inaugural Halloween event on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October.
Some 4,000 visitors were brave enough to venture into a frightening tour through the haunted park, where they met cracking skeletons, nasty monsters and staring eyeballs.
It was truly a howling Halloween weekend!
Tullamore Municipal District and Up Close and Personal Promotions catered for imaginations to run wild with storytelling, balloon modelling, installations hanging from tree tops and when darkness crept in, the creatures of Samhain arose ready to terrify all those who dared to walk in the winding paths of scary noises, eerie fog and strange sights to behold.
Families enjoyed the kids disco and fancy dress together with towering stilt walkers, Frankenstein and Dracula, while the chainsaw wielding ghoul had some visitors quivering. The fire breather and juggler made for a spectacular finale.
The event which was the first of its kind catered for all and was funded through the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media’s Local Live Performance Programming Scheme and Tullamore Municipal District.
