‘Imagine If...’ the theme for the Festival Parade, is inspired by the imagination of the youth of Ireland as they look to the future... the next 100 years.
A series of workshops took place with young people around Ireland to discuss their views on future Ireland. Ireland’s leading pageant companies have responded artistically and will bring these thoughts and ideas to life with spectacular pageantry and performance during the Festival parade.
Amidst the colourful pageantry, bands from Ireland will be joined by music ensembles from the USA, UK and Brittany, to deliver uplifting rhythms. The spectacular parade, bursting with colour and theatrics, will wind its way through the heart of Dublin city
