The City of Bones Festival

Halloween is creeping upon us and it's time to start planning your Halloween itinerary if you haven't already! If you find yourself wondering what to do, then why not visit Europe's biggest Halloween Street Carnival? That's right, in the city of Derry, from the 28th of October to the 31st, the city will be overtaken by scary zombies, haunted markets, spectacular fireworks and of course, the largest Halloween street party Europe has to offer! Below are some of the highlights of what's happening at during the City of Bones festival this year.

28th- See No Evil - A Haunted Experience in Sensory Deprivation

This event runs up until the 31st and it's certainly not for the fainted hearted. The Playhouse invites you to try and make it through the Haunted house experience, where you will only have touch, smell, and sound to rely on. The event runs every 20 minutes and is certainly one to remember (or forget)!

29th- Spark!

This is a wonderful street theatre show that combines light, magic, and movement to create a spectacular event that captivates the audience by combining dynamic choreography, high impact drumming, colourful lighting and playful characters. It's held at the Guildhall Square in Waterloo Place at 5 pm, 6.30 pm, and 8 pm, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to catch the show.

30th- Exploration Dome

If you fancy something a little less scary then this is a great alternative. You can journey with the astronauts and visit all your favourite planets on a fabulous trip through the Universe in Ireland's best Mobile Planetarium. This is a perfect one for the kids or space-loving adults.

31st- Halloween Street Carnival Parade

It's your time to scare! The finest carnival arts, street and circus performers from around the globe descend on the city for an illuminated spectacle like you've never seen before. Running from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm, you'll need to dress in your scariest fancy dress costume and get involved in this spooktacular event. Remember that at The Party Warehouse, we have a wide range of spooky costumes to suit your themes!

Finish off your time with the fantastic firework display on the River Foyle. Happy Halloween!
