Galway Aboo Halloween Festival

The Galway Aboo Halloween Festival takes place in the medieval streets of Galway’s Latin Quarter from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th of October 2017. It is the country’s largest Halloween Festival and plays host to a number of activities and events so promises to be a superb weekend for all ages.

The annual Hallowe’en parade by Macnas (who celebrate their 31st anniversary this year), will take place on Sunday 29th October 2017 at approximately 5.30pm.  This years parade is called ‘Port Na bPucaí (The Song of the Spirits)’ and as you would expect from the internationally renowned street theatre group, Macnas will be putting on a street-hopping, traffic-stopping party with a host of new giants, performances, bespoke costumes and live original music all drenched in their award-winning design. Spectators are encouraged to wear costumes too!
