Mythical creatures that have been lying in slumber in the city’s underground tunnels and caves for the past 5,000 years are coming to the surface to be part of Derry’s five days of family fun at the Banks of the Foyle Hallowe’en Carnival celebrations, October 27-31.

The Dragon Safari adventure is a hugely exciting and interactive wildlife extravaganza and will be located at St Columb’s Park on Monday, October 29 and Tuesday, October 30, between 1 and 5pm (latest admission 4.30pm) and on Wednesday, October 31, between 1 and 3pm (last admission at 2.30pm).

Rumour has it that as the darker evenings begin to draw in, sightings of these strange creatures have been reported throughout the city with giant footprints appearing at a number of locations!

Tickets for the dragon safari adventure are available to purchase in advance from Derry City Council Offices, the Tower Museum and St Columb’s Park Leisure Centre until Saturday, October 27, priced at £10 for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) or £3 for a single ticket.

Tickets will also be available on the day from the Gate at St Columb’s Park.
