Lantern Parade October 2014


The Island Events team were kept busy last night during the annual Lantern Parade, which happens around Halloween in Belfast. Run as a cross-community event the parade involves children, young people, and adults from various groups and schools across North Belfast.

Island Events staff were on hand to make sure the parade, which leaves from the Crumlin road jail and passes a number of well-known interface areas, was safe as it made its way to the Waterworks Park.

On arrival to the Waterworks Park more Island Events staff were present to help ensure the evening was magical, fun and above all else, safe. Fairy and theatrical performances ‘went off’ without a hitch in a safe and secure environment before the spectacular fireworks finale!!

It was a tremendous success with over 4,000 attending plus the Island Events team are already looking forward to next Halloween.
