Wicked Witch of Carrickmacross event
As part of Carrickmacross Chamber of Commerce program for the year we are asking all shop owners to participate in our Wicked Witch of Carrickmacross event.
All businesses are asked to make a witch, and give her a name. Place her either in your window or outside your shopfront. Use your witch wisely to help promote goods or products you sell. We ask that you place your witch on display from Tuesday 27th of October. Judging will take place on Thursday the 29th.
Halloween is on a Saturday this year and we hope it will be a busy day for all retailers in Carrickmacross. The Northern Sound roadcaster is coming to Carrickmacross on Thursday the 29th of October, this has been funded by the Chamber of Commerce.
Finally, we are asking all business owners and staff to have a fancy dress this Halloween, dress up in all things spooky on Saturday 31st of October.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us 087 6591176.
