EVENT DESCRIPTION

You may walk through it every day or each week and all seems normal but once a year the woods in Marlay Park is not a spot for those who are easily spooked! The creatures of the night will return on Sunday October 29th 2017 to the woods in Marlay Park on their annual visit for Samhain.

We don’t know why they choose the Sunday before Halloween each year but we have been warned that ghouls and goblins like The Gate Keeper, The Witches of the Woods, The Phantom Tailors and The Banshee will all make an appearance. Remember these creatures of the night practice dark magic and can take many forms. Take care not to get too close!

As always, Samhain will feature a spook filled walk with Halloween Spirits, Chills, Freaks and Frights. For one petrifying night only, the woods will be alive with ghouls, goblins, and menacing manifestations. Dress your worst and join us for a fright in the forest.

We want to see you in your Halloween costumes but remember it is an outdoor event so warm clothing is recommended. The walk is approx. 1.7km long on a path suitable for buggies and wheelchairs.
