WAKE ON THE WILD SIDE

Irish Independent - Weekend Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

The West’s largest free event is hap­pen­ing next Sun­day as the Mac­nas Hal­loween Pa­rade takes to the streets of Gal­way once more, with an an­tic­i­pated 40,000 peo­ple lin­ing up to see the spec­ta­cle. The theme for this year’s pa­rade — which is the brain­child of the pa­rade’s creative di­rec­tor, Orla Clogher — is a take on the Ir­ish wake, with the beauty of the West of Ire­land re­flected through the eyes of an old man from the is­lands as he pre­pares to die. As ever, you can ex­pect won­der­ful py­rotech­nics, the jaw-drop­ping gi­ant Mac­nas cre­ations, and live and orig­i­nal mu­sic. DE­TAILS: 5.30pm, Sun­day Oc­to­ber 29; see mac­nas.com 21 Oc­to­ber 2017
