Martians in the Marshes
A Martian who crash landed at Marshes Shopping Centre was helped by Dundalk children who had been working hard to build a new spaceship for the return journey as part of the Halloween Fun at Marshes.
Spaceships, built by pupils from St Nicholas Monastery National School, St Joseph’s National School and Castletown Girls School were on display at the Centre.
All were built from recyclable material and the best will receive a €350 prize for their schools’ art department.
There was also a display board where children are recording sightings of the Marshes Martian.
It was all part of the Halloween fun at Marshes, where there were free children’s activities from Saturday, October 27 to Wednesday, October 31, between 12.00 noon and 4.00pm each day.
The activities included making slime, alien headbands, paper plane wreaths, trick or treat bags, pom-poms and more spaceships.
‘ This is our second major event of the season at Marshes Shopping Centre and we are also looking forward to hosting more family events,’ said Aoife Kerley of Marshes Shopping Centre.
Halloween events incorporated the Marshes Little Monsters kids club.
The free kids club runs on the last Saturday of each month at the food court.
For further information on all events please see the Marshes Shopping Centre Facebook page.
