The parade procession included a Tang Dynasty drum team, a float, waist drummers, and large banners. It started at the War Memorial Gardens and went down O'Connell Street.

The banners read: “Falun Dafa Is Great,” “Truthfulness Compassion Tolerance,” “Happy Birthday to Master Li,” “Humanity's Only Hope Is to Improve Morality,” “Stop Persecuting Falun Gong,” “Bring Jiang [Zemin] to Justice,” and more. Practitioners on the float demonstrated the five Falun Gong exercises.

The police officers on duty already knew the facts about Falun Gong, having seen Falun Gong's peaceful activities calling for an end to the persecution in past years. They respect the practitioners and were happy to help them throughout the parade.

The parade ended at the end of Grafton Street in downtown Dublin, where practitioners performed a drum dance, a lion dance, and a lotus dance; gave an exercise demonstration; and sang as crowds of people watched. Many signed a petition calling for an end to the persecution. Some wanted to learn the exercises.
