The Dragon of Shandon Samhain Parade
31 octubre 2012
At the Dragon of Shandon Samhain Parade, Cork Community Art Link invites you to dress up, get spooky and walk with Ireland's last dragon through the historic streets of Shandon, Cork. The evening parade of spooks and ghouls sees hundreds of costumed zombies, vampires and monsters take to the streets on Halloween night along with illuminated river installations on the Lee. Each year the 36 foot articulated Sellotape Dragon of Shandon is joined on the night by a cast of 19th century characters as well as brightly illuminated skeletons, puppets, large props, lanterns and musicians. The Dragon of Shandon Samhain Parade is a one of Ireland's largest street celebrations of the Irish tradition of Samhain. The annual Leeside Halloween street parade is the result of an extensive community outreach programme and collaboration with artists that takes place across the city.
