Mayor launches world famous Derry Halloween celebrations
02 August 2019
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Michaela Boyle said the launch party was the ideal opportunity to whet the appetite for the celebrations in October and was delighted that so many costumed Halloween lovers came along for the event.
“It was great to officially launch this year’s world famous Derry Halloween celebrations – and to see so many local witches, wizards & warlocks taking part in the event!” she said.
“With just three months to go until this year’s celebrations in Derry and Strabane excitement and anticipation is already starting to build.
“Last year’s festivities saw in excess of 100,000 people attend over 100 events across 40 venues and Council’s Festivals and Events team and their partners are busy preparing to break new ground this year.
“The launch party was therefore a fantastic opportunity for people to start the festivities early and show the world what they can expect in October!”
Derry Halloween is organised and funded by Derry City and Strabane District Council with support from the Tourism N. Ireland International Fund.
