NileGuide Expert tip:
The streets fill quickly so get their early to claim your spot or better still, bring a ladder so you can see over the crowds.
Starting at O'Connell street the parade will weave and wind its way through the crowd lined streets of Dublin City. Passing Trinity College, Dame street, Christchurch Cathedral before finally ending at St. Patricks Cathedral. The theme of the parade for 2010 is 'Extraordinary World'. This is the real climax of the festival and is highly anticipated by people from all over the world. Almost 675,000 visitors lined the streets last year to cheer on the parade. Expect lots of marching bands, dancers, creative street theatre performers, artists and giant inflatable characters to float through the city.
