On 1 November, All Saints Day, the spirits make their way back to the Otherworld leaving us safe for another year. When Púca returns Drogheda will play host to Farewell to the Spirits, a huge parade, fire and feast spectacular over and around the Boyne River.

Venues across the town join in the Púca celebrations of Halloween with their own gigs, plays and happenings.
