No Dracula here; don’t need him (anyone who has ever heard Shaggs will understand the reference). I swear I didn’t ever think that any parade I’d ever see in life would be free of cheese and corn. The closest thing I ever experienced to corn & cheese free parade fare was the Disneyland Main Street Electrical brouhaha; and that was back in nineteen sev……uhhhhhmhhhmhmhuh huh huh. Anyways….I was REEEAALY little! I’ve seen videos though.
Bridget was away at work. She told me to get up and go take the kids to this thing. Her aunt and uncle gave us a ride into town. It was a wait but it was worth it. There were 50,000 people in the center of town there to watch. The company that put this show on is based here in town and they have a hefty rep outside of Galway. It looks like a lot of work that went into this. You can read about it here . Think medieval Celtic Cirque Du Soleil. Kinda.
I had Finn kicking away on my shoulders so these pics suck a little.
