A lovely glimpse of Social History – A May Day Parade perhaps? I can see part of a lodge/organisation/institute’s name on the proudly carried banner but cannot place the location.

Is there an Ebenezer Church in Cloonhill?

I managed to zoom in on the notices.

The notice to the right of the church door states
Bible Classes - Orchestra-Hymn Books Provided

The one to the left states
Ebenezer Church

The white notice in the doorway reads
The Childrens Day School Anniversary

It doesn't help much but may ring some bells.

Is the the FE holding the banner at the front?

It's got tram tracks so it must be a biggish place.

There is a Balloon hill in Bristol and an Ebenezer church.

thought the word on the banner ...loonhill was alittle longer than possibly cloonhill.

Brass bands are relatively uncommon in Irish processions. Flute bands, pipe bands and accordeon bands aplenty, but not brass bands.

Is it Air Balloon Hill?. Thats a wide banner.

The church is almost certainly Methodist. A lot of Methodist churches were called Ebenezer.

I'm 90% certain this is in Bristol. It's the only reference to a Fry's chocolate shop (my wife's a connoisseur :-) I can find from about that period which seems to match. Fry’s chocolate was apparently quite something to be savoured before it’s acquisition by Cadbury’s.
