Wicked Windows in Dungarvan for Halloween

Visit the ‘Wicked Windows’ at the Old Market House Arts Centre, Dungarvan for a festive and spooky experience compliments of the Dressing Dungarvan Initiative managed by the Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber in association with the Arts Service of Waterford City and County Council and supported by Waterford Council Festival funding.

From Friday 22 October all ages can enjoy comic witches, dancing skeletons and mummies appearing on to the windows of this historic building supported by spooky sounds. Starting at 4.30pm each day the dancing spooky Halloween characters will light up the building’s windows until 11.30pm nightly. However, you can come at any time of the day to view the Halloween themed ground floor window. The projection imagery has been created by Waterford visual artist John Loftus, known for Winterval lighting display. It will be lively and seasonal with appropriate spooky sounds. The entire scenes are installed by EveryEvent.

The Old Market House Arts Centre, Lower Main Street, is one of the most historic buildings in Dungarvan and a beautiful location for creativity and visual displays. The Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber is delighted to partner with the Old Market House Arts Centre on this piece of the Dressing Dungarvan Initiative. Earlier this year we saw the Giant Easter Egg on Grattan Square, for the entire summer there were giant ice creams doubling as tables outside Dungarvan Castle and a giant photo frame capturing Dungarvan quayside in the background, and so this is the next in the series of seasonally dressed spaces.

Leading the initiative is Jenny Beresford, Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber CEO who said, “The Chamber believes that themed positive promotion is especially important to keep momentum energetic and positive. ‘Dressing Dungarvan’ places unique and creative features in the centre of town for everyone of all ages to interact with and enjoy.”

This is a sensory, creative, attractive and safe experience which will provide seasonal atmospheric cheer for many.”

The windows will be Wicked from Friday 22 October until Sunday 31st October aha ha ha ha
