ODU and CNU are two of four American university bands invited to participate in the parade through Dublin’s downtown streets, which was expected to be lined with a half-million spectators.
The parade began at 7 a.m. local time, on Thursday, March 17. According to a festival official, the parade will run 75 minutes and will employ three fixed cameras and one roving camera to assure plenty of airtime for all of its participants.
