Don your most imaginative costume and come along to enjoy an array of fangtastic activities.

Beginning at 4pm, the entertainment line-up will feature:

  • freaky street shows and performers
  • breathtaking fire shows
  • Themed arts and craft workshops
  • Monster fairground rides (fees apply)
  • live music on stage

There’ll also be a range of sweet treats and hot food available for purchase between 4pm and 7pm.

Alongside our media partner, presenters will be on stage to entertain the crowd in the build up to the city’s biggest fireworks display. Set to a fiendishly funky soundtrack , fireworks will begin at approximately 6.45pm lasting for 15 minutes.
