The first of the parades which is the procession of bands is at 7pm. we usually arrive about 7.30 -7.45 ready for the main procession of floats at 9pm. The best area is around the town square or anywhere on the road leading down to the square. The locals all put there chairs out in front of their houses but in the square there are some seats provided
