There's great excitement this evening in Longford town as the annual Dead of Night festival gets underway.

The event was kick-started by a colourful parade, which saw characters including Elsa, Spiderman and Superman, as well as local ghouls and ghosts, make their way from St Mel's College up to the Market Square.

On the Market Square, the fun will continue until 9pm, with music, fun, games, stalls and activities for all ages to enjoy.
