Iron Man, Wonder Woman, police, firemen, athletes and everyday heroes will inspire the costumes for this year's Festival of Fisher's Ghost street parade.

The theme for this year's parade is, 'We Could Be Heroes'.

Campbelltown Mayor George Brticevic said he looked forward to seeing both comic book heroes and everyday local heroes represented at the event.

"It will be a lot of fun and a chance to recognise people who inspire us through their actions," Cr Brticevic said.

"Whether they be your neighbours, volunteers, emergency service workers or a fictional comic character.

"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."

The annual 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 will be held from Friday, November 1 to Sunday, November 10 and includes a range of events such as the prestigious Fisher's Ghost Art Award, the Fisher's Ghost Fun Run, Nerdcon pop culture event, along with the ever-popular street fair and carnival.

To participate in the parade, you can enter as a float, vehicle, group, sporting group, dance group, band or as an individual.
