Despite the chill on the hill as temperatures took a dip last week, the Hill of The O’Neill was packed to capacity on Friday night, as just under 4,000 people braved the cold to enjoy the fun and fireworks organised by Mid Ulster District Council.
The fun kicked off with free Halloween Freaky Tales and art workshop sessions taking place at Dungannon Library and Ranfurly House from early afternoon, as children created some spooky art work, and the drop-in Make Your Own Halloween Bats and Spiders workshop certainly got the little terrors into the Halloween spirit before the frighteningly fang-tastic fun started on the Hill.
Halloween party goers enjoyed ghastly games, mystifying music, freaky face painting, brilliant balloon modelling, and dance along with some scary characters, as stilt walkers and fire jugglers helped to set the freaky, Halloween mood. The evening finished with the highly anticipated spectacular fireworks display, which lit up the night sky above the town.
