Entries open for 2016 Roscommon Easter Parade

The Roscommon Easter Parade is just over four weeks away and entries are now being accepted for this year’s event taking place in the county town on Easter Sunday March 27th.

  It’s set to be a bumper Easter Sunday in Roscommon, which also features the Division 1 Allianz Football League encounter between Roscommon and Mayo at Dr. Hyde Park.

  As a result the parade will start at the earlier time of 12 noon with large crowds expected, and the Parade Committee, Chamber of Commerce, Town Team and Tidy Towns are all working together to make it a really memorable day in town. 

  The parade promises a riot of spectacle and colour with organisers anticipating a great mix of community participation and pageantry in this all-important historical centenary year. 

  With that in mind the parade will feature a special ‘1916’ themed prize in addition to awards for the established categories; Community, Commercial, Most Entertaining, and Overall. Businesses are again being encouraged to add to the sense of occasion in town by taking part in the Shop Window Display while young and old can showcase some creative flair as they go head to head on the day for the honour of best Easter Bonnet. 

  The official entry form can be downloaded from the parade’s Facebook page and website www.roscommoneasterparade.com or by emailing roscommoneasterparade@gmail.com.
