FÉILE an Phobail director, Kevin Gamble is promising families that they are in for a treat this Halloween as they gear up to host their annual lantern parade and fireworks display.
The event, which has been running for over 15 years has become a focal point of spooky activities across the community and will once again bring much-needed delight to families this scary season.
“We will assemble at the Kennedy Centre car park at 6pm where there will be various spooky activities for families and kids. The parade leaves at 7 pm and will make its way to the Falls Park,” he said.
“Families can expect to see the top class parade and fireworks display that we have every year. Along the route of the parade we will have various bands and entertainers mingling with the crowds. When we get up to the Falls Park we will have a fire show which will keep people entertained until the fireworks take place.
“The fireworks are usually one of the biggest displays in the city over Halloween and once again this year we will have a display that we hope will brighten some people's darkest days and be a real positive for the community.”
Those attending are encouraged to come in fancy dress.
