ONE of Sligo's oldest Parades takes place in Aclare.

It's on Sunday at 4.30pm.

More than 30 floats will assemble at the Community Centre.

From there the Parade will line up at The Bridge and makes its way through Dromore West village.

It returns from the Aclare Plastics Factory.

One of the organisers, Enda Gavaghan said: "We're expecting another big turn-out.

"I think after the main Sligo Parade we certainly are the longest established in the county."

The Kennedy Brothers Perpetual Cup will be awarded to the best overall entry.

There are a number of other category prizes.

The Midfield Pipe Band, Swinford, will again feature.

Local National School children are also participating.
