Macnas Samhain parade another roaring success

Tens of thousands of spectators took to the streets of Galway yesterday evening to witness the 2017 Macnas parade.

People lined the streets in the heart of the city from early yesterday afternoon and thousands more watched live streams of the festival from around the world.

Many people were drawn to the main attraction, which was a giant old man with his dog, who navigated the streets in a boat.

‘Port Na bPúcaí’ or Song of the Spirits was the theme for this year’s parade, which celebrated the magic and mystery of life here in the West.

The full parade can be watched below.
