Thousands of people lined the streets of Derry as the city’s famous Halloween carnival parade returned for the first time in three years.
The parade was the highlight of a night of events that brought down the curtain on Derry’s traditional Halloween festival, billed as the biggest in Europe.
Covid-19 restrictions prevented the parade from taking place in both 2020 and 2021.
Heavy rains failed to dampen the spirits of young and old who gathered under umbrellas to witness the spooky spectacular on Monday night.
