Macnas Halloween Parade, Galway
Port Na bPucaí (The Song of the Spirits) will power through the streets of Galway at 5.30pm on Sunday October 29, 2017.
The Macnas Halloween Parade is a highlight of Ireland’s cultural calendar in October, and the Galway Parade is the largest free event in the West of Ireland.
Over 40,000 people line the streets every year to be awed and amazed by this epic scale of storytelling, as the company unleashes creative chaos and invention.
The 2017 parade concept and design, an imaginative celebration of life in the West of Ireland, is the brain-child of Parade Creative Director Orla Clogher.
Three women lead the Macnas magic this year with the voice of Musical Director Orlagh deBhaldraithe and the inventions of Costume Designer Cherie White. The Macnas parade includes the work of the Macnas creative ensemble, comprised of 45 professional artists and 300 volunteers supported by CEO/Artistic Director Noeline Kavanagh.
