The Grand Parade: River of Light

22nd September 2018 @ 7:30 pm
Tonight, the streets of Clifden will flow with light, colour, music and costumes as the procession sails around the town.

Ireland’s internationally-acclaimed illuminated processional artists LUXe present this spectacular community parade of light through the town. Every year, LUXe fill their lungs with Atlantic air in order to breathe some of that rare energy into the towns and cities they visit. Working with 200 local participants, this event is a highlight of everyone’s year.

Fidget Feet will take to the skies of Clifden, bringing you amazing aerial acts high in the sky. Performances will take place from 2pm-5pm and again that night during the gig, with live special effects. Each year, Fidget Feet bring fun, laughter and a sprinkle of beauty to the festival. This is always one of the highlights of the Grand Parade.

Followed by fireworks (weather permitting) and The Connemara All Stars 10-piece band with full brass section outdoor on the rig from 10:30pm – guests from Europe join local musicians to perform classics and original material, with something for everyone.

Traffic restrictions will be in operation.
