Halloween Festival 2018
October Friday the 26th to Sunday the 30th

 Halloween celebration.

Welcome to Crosshaven Festivals second

Halloween celebration.

Crosshaven Festivals is local community group set up by the community for the community.  Our aim is to promote festivals, events and the

community spirit in the area.  We know the area has so much to offer and we will strive to make Crosshaven and its

surrounding areas known throughout the land.

Those of you who have gone to the effort of dressing up, we thank you.  This bank holiday weekend promises to be a fun filled family extravaganza with something for all ages.  We are looking forward to this festival growing in the forthcoming years. Thank you to everyone involved.

Kind regards,

The Crosshaven Festivals team.

Hallowe’en in Crosshaven


It’s Hallowe’en in Crosshaven

Are you getting scared ?

Of the ghosts and ghouls and goblins

That are lurking everywhere.


I saw a Zombie down in Centra

He was buying crisps and sweets

And some ghosts up the woods

Practicing their tricks for treats.


And all around Brightwater

The Witches and Werewolves play

Haunting every road and green

Howling night and day.


In Fountainstown, in Graball

Myrtleville and Drake's Pool

In Church Bay and in Fennells

The Spooks and Witches rule.


And it’s not only ghosts and ghouls

but Fairies and Princesses too

Bob the builder, Batman

and even Winnie the Pooh.


There are kid Gardai and Firefighters

there are Robots, there are Elves

There are Dogs and there Frogs

and kids dressed like themselves.


And all these strange looking folk

These monsters and these ghouls

they are just our neighbours

dressing up. They think it’s cool.


So get your costume on (or not)

Grab a bag for all your sweets,

It is Hallowe’en in Crosshaven

and it’s Time for Trick or Treat
