SOLAS – Halloween Haunted House, Pumpkin Patch & Best Food in Laois
Halloween Delights Await: Spooktacular Fun, Food, and Frights at SOLAS!
Halloween has arrived, and SOLAS is your perfect destination for a thrilling and memorable celebration. The Halloween week is packed with exciting events, from pumpkin patches and haunted houses to chocolate-making adventures and a menu of spooky treats. David Maher, co-owner of SOLAS, appreciates the dedication and creativity of their team, including Event Manager Georgina Carey and Food Manager Daniela Vacarus, who have transformed SOLAS into a premier family events destination in the Midlands.
Best Food in Laois: In the spirit of the season, Daniela Vacarus has masterfully crafted the food offerings at SOLAS. By sourcing high-quality local ingredients, SOLAS has proudly become ‘Official Supporters of Laois Taste,’ offering an impressive selection of delicious food and beverages. This commitment to quality, sustainability, and integration with local food suppliers has elevated SOLAS’s reputation as the go-to destination for excellent food.
On a more somber note, SOLAS extends its condolences to the family of Bas Wiebenga, the founder of ‘Sushi-Mania.’ Bas was a familiar and positive presence at SOLAS markets over the past few years, making significant contributions to the world of food and life.
