This year’s parade in Clifden promises to be a day filled with family fun with lots of additional activities this year, to include face painting, children’s disco, surprise treats, fun and games. The 2014 parade sees the introduction of a special prize category for the Best Dressed Dancing Leprechaun. We hope to see lots of dancing leprechauns of all ages to battle it out for this prize and be crowned Connemara’s King/Queen Dancing Leprechaun 2014. The parade will commence at 12.30pm with all groups to assemble along Galway Road by 11.30am. Stewards will be on hand along route to aid and assist in any way to ensure a safe-and well marshalled parade. Participating groups and individuals may enter any float or theme of their own choosing so the wilder the imagination the better to give our community a great entertaining day out.
