Monster Halloween fancy dress parade

Published

on

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the building – maybe it’s time to think again.

After a two-year pandemic enforced absence, during which they hid away in dark and squalid recesses, ghouls and phantoms, beasts and brutes, menacing monsters and cackling witches are reportedly descending, in strange spooky swarms, on Killarney Outlet Centre as the Halloween season rapidly approaches.

The public is advised to be afraid – be very afraid – if they find themselves in the vicinity of Killarney Outlet Centre this Sunday (October 30) as things might go bump – not in the night – but in broad daylight.
The floors of the popular shopping destination have been creaking during the otherwise still witching hours as the spooks make their own plans for their favourite time of the year.

Defiant as ever, however, the children of Killarney will not fear a zombie takeover as they make plans of their own to celebrate with a Halloween party to remember with fantastic prizes and free fun activities for the whole family, from 2pm to 6pm.
FANCY DRESS PARADE
The colourful and maybe just a little bit scary Halloween fancy dress parade will take place upstairs in the centre and the lucky winners will receive some super prizes, including a Razor Sport Scooter, Nerf Magstrike and Owl Squishi for the Best Dressed Boy and a Razor Sport Scooter, Crazart Shimmer n’ Sparkle Tie Dye Studio and Pussycat Squishi for the Best Dressed Girl, both sponsored by World of Wonder.

The Best Dressed Family, in association with the Christmas in Killarney festival, will receive a family pass for two adults and two children (under 12) to visit Santa at ANAM on the East Avenue Road, Killarney and the lucky family will also receive three occasion platters for their next family event from O’Brien’s Irish Sandwich Bar in Killarney Outlet Centre.

The Best Dressed Adult, meanwhile, will collect a €50 voucher for DV8 which is also in the centre.
Registration for the fancy dress parade will open from 3.30pm with an entry fee of just €1 per person and the judges are looking forward to seeing some really fantastic and unusual costumes this year.
Every child who participates in the fancy dress parade will be given a free goody bag.

There will be free bouncy castles with A Time to Party, free Halloween face painting, floor games and balloon modelling while the incredible Tony Wonder will be on hand with his famous magic shows at 2.30pm and 4.30pm.

As an added novelty, Killarney Candle Makers will also be set up to help create personalised candles with a small charge applying.

Paul Sherry, General Manager at Killarney Outlet Centre, said he can’t wait for the mayhem and madness to commence.

“Halloween is a great time for the children to be children and I know families are really looking forward to our fancy dress party and all the free fun activities, to which all are welcome,” he said.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
