Dungannon Gaelic Forum have invited everyone from the local community to their St Patrick’s Day Cultural Parade through the town next Tuesday.
The pageant will take the form of a street procession, incorporating floats and street style carnival parading recognising the cultural identity of communities within the area. The event will also entail a cultural concert celebrating identities and traditions through music, song and dance.
With five bands in attendance including a lively samba group it will be a truly musical day with the popular “Frozen” float, wicker chair, and East Timor dancers among many others.
A spokesperson for the organisers said: “Dungannon can truly be heralded as a visitor experience for all to come and see with a parade that will reinvigorate the streets of the town.
“The parade will be followed by a concert at Hill Of The O Neill and cultural activities in Ranfurly House from 4pm to 6pm to celebrate the wonderful diversity of tradition within the Borough and headline performances by Whistlin Donkeys, Tura and Wendy Jack. These events are not to be missed and with no admission fees what better way to spend the bank holiday”
The parade will start at Anne Street at 3pm. This project is funded through The OFDM through Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough Council’s Good Relations Office
