Wolfe Tone Square will be transformed into a spooky, pop-up playground with thrills, spooks and spills. You can get portrait photos done in period dress once you get your deathly makeover or pick up some screen prints from Damn Fine Print. The world class street-performers Able Mabel and chainsaw-juggling and fire-breathing The Mighty Gareth will be there to entertain kids and parents alike and fancy dress is encouraged.

Accessible: YES
Wolfe Tone Square is all flat and there is wheelchair parking available beside the Square and in the Jervis carpark.

 

Macnas Twilight Procession
26 October 2015, 17:30 – 18:30
Three different routes across the city

Join the magic and wizardry of Macnas as they lead a twilight procession through three different routes in Dublin’s city centre. Danu, the Goddess of the Divine and Dark, will lead the procession as the city transforms into a spectacular celebration, welcoming the feast of Samhain.

Accessible: YES
If you look at the Macnas_Map, you can choose the best spot to view and follow the procession. The green and red routes are all on flat surfaces and the footpaths are all quite wide. The orange route goes through parts of Temple Bar, and the cobblestones and narrow paths in that part of town are quite difficult for wheelchairs to navigate.
