A record 4500 people attended this year’s Halloween on The Hill celebrations in Dungannon.
The evening of fun, a Firewalk and fireworks took place on Friday past, 27th October at the Hill of The O’Neill.
Activities took place throughout the day with Freaky Tales and art workshops taking place from 1.30pm at Dungannon Library and Ranfurly House. A Make Your Own Flying Bat Sculpture workshop took place at Ranfurly House on a drop-in basis from 4pm-7pm before the spooktacular evening on The Hill kicked-off at 6.30pm.
Malachi Cush was MC for the event which had plenty of fang-tastic fun for all the family, including ghastly games, mystifying music, freaky face painting, brilliant balloon modelling, and lots of scary characters.
The terrifying vortex tunnel proved very popular for those who were brave enough to try it and stilt walkers and fire jugglers certainly helped to set the freaky, Halloween mood. A magic show also take place which thrilled and amazed all little monsters.
The spectacular grand finale fireworks display left onlookers truly amazed as the fanfare of colour lit up the sky over Dungannon.
The evening also included a charity Firewalk in aid of Muscular Dystrophy which saw up to 30 people put mind over matter and walk across burning coals in an attempt to ‘put the heat’ on muscle wasting conditions that directly affect around 2,000 people in Northern Ireland.
Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Kim Ashton, came along to the event to experience the hair-raising atmosphere for herself and also to count-down the fang-tactic fireworks display.
A spooktacular, mystical evening was definitely had by all!
