CONNSWATER Shopping Centre and Retail Park has unveiled a bubbling cauldron of seasonal tricks and treats for all the family with the return of the Halloween Monster Mansion.
Arriving for a second year and located within the Connswater Shopping Centre, the fiendish delights of the Mansion will be running until 31st October. Packed with spine-tingling costumes, little ghosts and ghouls can dress up and have a photo taken while looking their frightful best for free.
Celebrating the spookiest day of the year in style, the Belfast shopping centre will be hosting a Halloween extravaganza on 31st October, featuring a free Fancy Dress Trick or Treat with goody-bags being filled at all the shops and live entertainment promising chills and thrills for children of all ages.
Calling all would-be ghosts and goblins, Connswater Shopping Centre Manager Gerry Monaghan said: “Halloween is all about having fun and staying safe! It’s one of the few times in the year when you can dress up, unwind and play some games with friends and family.
For us, Halloween is all about making sure that everyone coming to Connswater, young and old, has a great time. This year it is set to be bigger and better than ever with the Monster Mansion and children’s entertainers giving visitors the chance to really join in the thrills of the season.
Of course it wouldn’t be Halloween without fancy dress and trick or treat. Our retailers will be filling up the goody-bags for children coming dressed up on the day. We can’t wait to welcome everyone along and provide all the ‘scare-necessities’ for the prefect Halloween.”
