Titanic Quarter in Belfast lit up last night with a spectacular display of fireworks as Halloween festivities kicked off.
The former slipways where the world’s most famous ship slid into the water over a century ago played host to a new generation of Ulster creativity with some fangtastic costume efforts.
Far from settling for the traditional witch or wizard costumes, some revellers at the Metro Monster Mash party dressed elaborately as characters like Edward Scissorhands, a fanged cheetah and one man even recreated the ghoulish, cult horror movie classic, Hellraiser.
Local singer Conor Grimes, from BBC’s The Voice, swapped busking on city streets for headlining the event. He was supported by local band Freefall.
Street theatre, face painting and fire shows entertained both young and old, and there were prizes awarded for the night’s best costumes.
In the run up to Halloween, there will be ghost walks from City Hall each night and special tours of Crumlin Road Gaol.
In the north west, the Londonderry Halloween Carnival will run until November 3. The Halloween parade will take place on Thursday
