A ghoulish amount of spooktacular events have been organised to celebrate Halloween across Northern Ireland this year.
As the scariest day in the calendar nears, final plans have been put in place for All Hallows Eve.
From ghost trains in Belfast to jousting shows in Larne and a festive craft fair in Florencecourt near Enniskillen, there is certainly something to thrill everyone.
Londonderry will host four days of spooky family fun along the banks of the Foyle which ends with a huge fireworks display this Sunday evening.
The basement at the Richmond Centre in the city has become Nightmare Manor, a series of terrifying rooms which will be haunted by creepy characters from the McCafferty School of Drama.
Derry mayor Colum Eastwood described the event as “the Mardi Gras of the north west”.
He said: “The programme has evolved particularly in recent years to have a more family-focused appeal, with many visitors planning their mid-term break around the event and this year’s programme features something for everyone with a range of events that are sure to delight people young and old.”
A list of events happening in the city can be found on www.derrycity.gov.uk
Belfast is also gearing up for a number of great Halloween activities.
The main event is the Metro Monster Mash which takes place at the Odyssey from 2pm on Sunday.
The Metro Monster Mash promises to keep little monsters and grown-up ghouls entertained with street theatre, a carnival and live music during the day, culminating in a magical fireworks display in the evening.
Metro will be putting on free shuttle buses to the event from the city centre.
Elsewhere in Belfast ghosts and goblins are thought to be hiding under the hay at Streamvale Farm and a Teepee of Horror has been put up in the Falls Park.
The Ghostly Sea Shanty Ship has docked at Belfast Harbour and those brave enough to go on board will be enthralled by spine-tingling tales of strange goings-on and all that goes bump in the night.
And if that is not enough action for one weekend you can head along to the Stroke Association’s Halloween Howler Fun Run and Walk which kicks off in the Botanic Gardens on Saturday.

Also being hosted in the city is a Sing-along-a-Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Special at St Patrick's Trian Visitor Complex.
Seven FM will be broadcasting from Ballymena’s bloodcurdling carnival this evening.
Events include a stilt-walking samba band, fire jugglers, a funfair and Halloween storytelling before a fireworks display at 8.30pm.
