Other World Festival Ballymun

The Parade The Ballymun Festival Steering Group would like to invite you to participate in the Other World Festival Parade on Halloween Night 31st October 2012. The theme of the Parade this year is Dracula, Vampires and Bats and we are hoping that, as many individuals, groups and organisations will take part. Why not join in – get your friends, group or organisation to make a float, dress up in a scary costume, or carry a flag for your team! We are just waiting to hear any ideas you may have to make the Parade bigger and better. A show of strength will let everyone know that Ballymun has a vibirant community and voluntary sector!

Participants will experience a diversity of academic, sports, cultural and social activities. The day will conclude with a reception in the Helix at 4.00pm. Participants will be provided with guidance and information on programmes and activities commencing in October 2012.
