Rushfear Spooky Shenanigans and South Lake Fireworks

Spooktacular fireworks are set to return to Craigavon Lakes this autumn as Halloween descends once again.

Prepare for a monster mash of ghostly goings-on and fantastically frightening fun at our Halloween Extravaganza on Thursday 28th October.

The spooky spectacular gets underway at ‘Rushfear’ Shopping Centre with entertainment and themed activities from 4pm. The magical Halloween Family Carnival Parade will leave Rushmere Shopping Centre at 7.30 pm, giving all those creative kids, mums and dads an opportunity to dress up with a sparkler of a costume. Cross the beastly bridge and head to Spooky South Lake for a breathtaking firework display which will light up the night sky at 8pm.

A spectacular evening not to be missed!!
