It is expected that 1500 people will and there will up to 10,000 spectators. This is well established parade having started under the current committee in 1983. The standard is very high with a great mixture of bands, Ceoltas groups and dancers. The schools always improvise with imaginative floats that never fail to inspire. All local community and sporting groups partake and add great flair to the event. Before the Parade the Tullamore Ceoltas group link with the Durrow Set Dancers to provide excellent warm up entertainment at the main stand. This is one of the finest Parades in the country.
