The late David Bowie sang: We can be heroes just for one day, and now everyone in Campbelltown will get the chance to do just that.

That’s because We Could Be Heroes will be the theme for this year’s Festival of Fisher’s Ghost street parade on November 2.

Batman, Wonder Woman, emergency workers, athletes and everyday heroes could be some of the inspirational characters taking part in this year’s parade along our main thoroughfare, Queen Street.

Mayor George Brticevic wore The Hulk gloves and joined Captain America in Mawson Park this morning to promote this year’s theme.

He said he was excited and looking forward to seeing the comic book heroes and the local heroes represented at the annual event.

“It will be a lot of fun and a chance to recognise people who inspire us through their actions,’’ he said.

“Whether they be your neighbours, volunteers, emergency service workers or a fictional comic character,” Cr Brticevic said.

“The parade has become a vibrant and dynamic opening to the 10 day Fisher’s Ghost Festival celebrations and I look forward to seeing everyone there again this year,” he said.

The Festival of Fisher’s Ghost street parade will begin at the corner of Broughton Street and Queen Street at 4pm on Saturday, November 2.

The Festival of Fisher’s Ghost – Campbelltown’s annual party – will start 24 hours earlier and will include a range of events such as the prestigious Fisher’s Ghost Art Award, the Fisher’s Ghost Fun Run, Nerd Con pop culture event, the street fair and carnival.

Anyone who is interested in taking part in the parade – as a super hero or otherwise – can register now by visiting the Campbelltown Council website.
