Annie will only be four and a half months this Halloween so being realistic she won’t really know what is going on. Beyond smiling and giggling at Peppa Pig and her daddy, or getting excited at Baby Sensory and Waterbabies, Annie doesn’t show much emotion but then she really doesn’t understand what is going on yet so what on earth can we get up to in N.Ireland this Halloween?
Luckily for me, and much to Carl’s disappointment (he says it is a stupid holiday), there is loads on this Hallowe’en for little ones of all ages.
Twilight Night by Fairy Light
This event, ran by Lisburn and Castlereigh City Council, in Wallace Park on Friday 27th October 7-9pm, is unfortunately ticket only but is set to be a fantastic night out! With dress up a must and a firework display it is set to be a great night out for little ones. You can find more details here.

Our local Baby Sensory class is hosting a Halloween themed party on Sunday 29th October which we can’t wait to attend. The event is ticketed but you can book at http://www.babysensory.com.
