Samhain (sow-in) Parade and Carnival – sundown

October 31 @ 5:30 pm

Free

Colourful Celtic and Latin Culture collide in a fantastical parade and stage show of costumes, live music, fire dancing, and Thriller dance festival finale.
Join us in a fantastical grand procession on Halloween. Combining the Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced SOW-IN) and the Latin Dia de los Muertos, (Day of the Dead) this colourful festival finale event will honour the annual life and death cycle on  October 31st. At sundown, a host of masked participants, forest creature mâché masks, life-size Mexican “Catrinas”, musical street performers, zombies, drummers, and more will lead a public parade from the Seaside Centre to Hackett Park for  Cool Heat fire dancing, the Junkyard Band, and a special Thriller dance presentation. Come in whatever Halloween costume you have planned.

FREE ADMISSION – ALL AGES welcome
Meet us at the SEASIDE CENTRE, 5790 Teredo St, Sechelt and then parade to HACKETT PARK, 5765 Dolphin St, Sechelt
