On Sunday August 23, Limerick is set to get heroic with the first ever Super Hero Parade 2015. Starting at 12 O’Clock in Arthurs Quay Park, kids, grown-ups and Cos-players of every kind will parade up O’Connell Street to People’s Park for music, magic, games and prizes.

The parade will feature street performers, magicians and even a helicopter display with real life local heroes, a whole ton of super fun. A ticket will allow each child admission to the event area at the end of the parade, and automatic entry into the prize draw!

The event is being organised to raise funds for Mid-West Spina Bifida Association, which provides services in Limerick, Clare and Tipperary, for those with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.




The Mid West Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association works with 106 families with members who have Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary. The charity has been in existence since 1982 and provides support, information, physiotherapy, counselling, advocacy and advice to members, their parents and carers and to expand and upgrade services for people living with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in order to promote individual choice, control and quality of life. Spina Bifida is a common condition affecting one in every thousand children in Ireland. Ireland has one of the highest incidences of Spina Bifida births in the world and causes incomplete development of the spinal cord. The effects of the condition vary from profound physical and intellectual disability to milder disabilities. 

All adult entry is free, €10 per child. For the chance to win free entry for all of your family tweet your best super hero pose and use the hashtag #GetHeroic. If you cannot buy tickets online you can register on the day of the event!
