Dragon of Shandon Samhain Parade and Festival 2014
Cork Community Art Link is excited to announce the new Dragon of Shandon Samhain Parade and Festival which will take place from October 29th to 31st 2014 in and around the streets of Shandon.
This new festival format has been in planning since 2013, as CCAL embarked upon a journey to develop the Dragon of Shandon into a more inclusive and sustainable community event. Engaging with the local community and interested groups and individuals the aim is to provide an extended programme of events which provides greater opportunities for participation. A community festival, The Dragon of Shandon, will take place in collaboration with local groups, organisations, venues and individuals providing a diverse programme of activities, performances and workshops, show casing local talent and offering opportunities for people of all ages to get involved.
The festival will culminate in the Dragon of Shandon Samhain Parade on Friday October 31st with the 36 ft Dragon made entirely of tape and his host of ghosts and ghouls returning to the streets of Shandon.
The Festival Programme is currently being confirmed so watch this space for a full schedule in the coming weeks.
