Our favourite Halloween activity ideas

Posted on October 22, 2010 @ 6:21 PM in Adventure

You've found our 2010 Halloween Blog but don't worry there's plenty happening this year too. Check out 'Halloween Haunts & Frightening Fun 2016'

Normally when we mention outdoor activities, people list off fears such as ‘I’m scared of heights’, ‘I’m scared of water’ or other such fears and phobias.  

However this weekend those fears will seem insignificant when encountered by ghouls and goblins from the underworld.

These fearsome creatures will be appearing all over Northern Ireland during Halloween.  But don't be scared - stick close together with friends and family and try to shake them loose with some outdoor activity.  Although that might not even be enough.

Check out our favourite outdoor activity ideas for this Halloween!
