At 1.30pm up to 50,000 people – on floats, in bands, in happy groups – will explode  out of Parnell Square in a riot of colour, music, glitter and sequins, to dance, sing and celebrate their way through the centre of the city to the Pride Village in Merrion Square.

Live music, big screens, food, a family & community zone and lots of other entertainment will keep the celebration going at the Village until 6pm.

Late into the night social events at venues throughout the city round the day off.
