Kirkwall BID – Halloween Spooktacular Parade @ Kirkwall Town Centre
Oct 29 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Halloween Parade
Are you a ghost, a ghoul, a witch or a warlock? Maybe you’re Spiderman, a Pokémon, or even Buzz Lightyear. We don’t care what you wear for our special fancy dress Halloween parade, or how young or old you are, as long as you’ve got a fun costume and want to show it off.thumb_IMG_1147_1024

Taking part is dead easy. The parade, lead by Kirkwall City Pipe Band, will leave from the harbour end of Bridge Street at 3pm, winding its way through the town to Victoria Street. It’ll then stop for a while on Broad Street for a few pipe tunes and a performance from Just Dance, with spectators getting the chance to get a good look at all the fantastic costumes.  All the cars on the street will have been spirited away too, adding to the party atmosphere.  After the Broad Street performances, the parade will head down Victoria Street where it will come to a gruesome end. Kindly watching over proceedings will be the Emergency Care Medical Group, so the parade’s safe, as well as spooky. We also remind participants not to carry lanterns with naked flames.

Also, out on the street, you’ll find the public health staff from NHS Orkney handing out healthy Halloween goodie bags to all those strangely dressed revelers.
