Limavady will host one of three flagship Twelfth parades this year, it has been announced.

A combined county demonstration will be held in the town on July 12.

The flagship parades in Limavady, Markethill and Larne will all provide an enhanced cultural experience as part of the biggest annual festival in Northern Ireland.

All three host districts will offer a varied programme of events surrounding their respective Twelfths, as well as the colour and pageantry associated with the largest day in the Orange calendar.

A total of 17 demonstrations are planned across the Province on July 12, all of which follow the traditional Rossnowlagh parade held in the Republic on the preceding weekend.

Enterprise Trade and Investment Minister, Arlene Foster, said: “The flagship concept is aimed at those parades that want to broaden their appeal to draw a tourism audience and I am sure that those involved will provide a diverse and vibrant programme.”
