The young people of Corofin look set to have a healthy Halloween this year with a series of events organised in the town. The second annual Cora-Ween Halloween celebrations will take place this Thursday, October 28, in the town. The night will include a number of fun events for young people with all proceeds from the night going to the Temple Street Children’s University Hospital. The festivities will begin with a Spooky Witches’ Walk through the village – with young people in costumes set to scare anyone who crosses their path. Children and parents are asked to meet at the GAA Hall at 5.45pm before making their way to St Patrick’s Hall. The evening’s entertainment will get underway at 6pm sharp with a Healthy Halloween Disco set to get all the little monsters moving. There will also be healthy snacks, party games and face painting while young people are invited to bring their pre carved pumpkins and take part in the first ever Corofin Pumpkin Parade. Local hairdressers Hair Flair will also have a special surprise on the night which is expected to both entertain and scare gathered little monsters.
“This year we really wanted to promote a healthy Halloween for the young people so a group of parents and local businesses got together to create this evening of events,” said organiser, Fiona Guiheen.
“We will have a nice walk through the village for everyone taking part, tasty health food available in the night and a host of fun activities designed to give the children some extra exercise. The proceeds from the night are also going to Temple Street Children’s Hospital in Dunlin.”
Music on the night will be provided by DJ Fi-eeel Good who will be spinning out a range of spooky tunes for the children and the parents to dance to. This event is open to all children in the area but they must be accompanied by an adult who must remain on the premises for the entire event. Any parent who would like to bring some healthy food for the party would be most welcome. Admission for the Cora-Ween Halloween celebration is €2 and the proceeds from the event will go to the Temple Street Children’s University Hospital. In preparation for a healthy halloween, Corofin National School hosted a ‘Walk a Mile With a Smile’ event last week with all students and teachers dressing for the event.
