There are a lot of cool Halloween events happening this year, but heading out for a surf while dressed as Lady Gaga is next level.

Rebelle Surf, a Strandhill surf group are hosting a Halloween Fancy Dress and Surf event on Sunday October 31st.

The Divas for DVAs event is a fundraiser for Domestic Violence Advocacy Service, a group who support women and children under threat of domestic abuse in the areas of Sligo, Leitrim and West Cavan.

Rebelle Surf are encouraging people to celebrate the women DVAs support by dressing up as their favourite diva, with the option of a group surf too. In the post announcing the event on Insta, Rebelle Surf said: “If you’d like to support the event and not surf just come on down in your finery and join the celebration from the beach”. Regarding the costumes, “no rules apply, go wild! If Divas aren’t your thing, no worries, surprise us with something equally WOW!”

There’ll be prizes for Best Dressed and loads more, many of which have been donated by great local businesses in the Strandhill area. The event is suitable for children and adults of all ages, and costs €10 to enter. All you need to do now is get planning your costume!
