Letterkenny Chamber and Shop LK have a surprise for those who attend the Halloween Fest on the 31st of October on the Main Street.Rumour has it that close to 4pm something evil could be lurking in the dark. Not quite under moonlight, (although with time going back it could seem that way) you may see a sight that almost stops your heart.John Watson Chamber President commented “We have gone all out this year with the help of Letterkenny Town Council, to organise Halloween in Letterkenny and we feel the surprise is the icing on the cake. “Secret rehearsals have taken place over the last six weeks and costumes are being put together as we speak. We hope there will be a great turn out for it, it’s something you won’t want to miss”.As well as the surprise there will be music with DJ Scoop from 1pm piped up and down Main Street, we are encouraging families to come out dressed in their best costumes to trick or treat in participating shops. They might get a chance to meet Dracula, have their face painted and hear some ghostly stories. It’s all going to be good family fun.To find out what the surprise is, and to join in all other activities come down to the Main Street from 1pm on Wednesday the 31st, there’s sure to be a thrill in the air.
