Inside The Amazing Halloween Celebration
Derry, Ireland’s Halloween celebration is known to many as the best Halloween event in the world. In 2016 USA Today rated Derry THE BEST HALLOWEEN DESTINATION IN THE WORLD. There are over 600 people involved and 40,000 people that attend the official carnival parade. Not to mention the 9 day Foyle Halloween Carnival that celebrates all things Halloween. If that doesn’t sound like one of the best, if not the best Halloween event in the world then I don’t know what is. Talk about a lot of people, vendors, and Halloween madness, this would be the ultimate Halloween adventure.
So where did it all start?
It started in one of Derry City’s local pubs and grew into what it is today. Derry sits on the banks of the River Foyle in the Northwest of Ireland. It’s not your typical city either, it’s an amazing place full of rich and vibrant history. The Halloween celebration is something the entire city gets involved with. People from all over the world come to enjoy the festivities. The entire city and those nearby love to be involved and partake in all the festivals traditions and events.
Halloween Is Here
If a 9-day carnival doesn’t sound like a reason to go I don’t know what does. They also have a slew of firework shows, haunted ghost tours, workshops, and anything else related to Halloween. It’s one of those places that you have to visit if you love Halloween.
