Fright fest in Douglas

Douglas town centre has a frightening feel to it on this afternoon (Sat), as the Island's inaugural Fright Fest takes place.

The afternoon of festivities include ghost walks, live music, fancy dress competitions and a local food and craft market.

Dressing up is mandatory in what is the beginning of the traditional Manx celebration of Hop tu Naa.
