    A 'caravan', but I'd only use this in very rare circumstances. Historically, it was a group travelling together across certain deserts. A 'cavalcade' is a formal procession of people travelling on horses and/or in vehicles. Again, not an everyday word. Jun 2, 2017 at 3:22

1 Answer 1


you could use Procession depending on what sort of event it was.

Our procession consisted of 1400 people, 14 horses, and a dog in a baby carriage.


procession at Oxford Living Dictionaries NOUN

1A number of people or vehicles moving forward in an orderly fashion, especially as part of a ceremony.

‘a funeral procession’

You could also try words like "Mob", or "crowd" for less orderly groups but you'd need another word with them for moving

A Parade is another word

second definition of Parade at Oxford living dictionaries

1.2 A series of people or things appearing or being displayed one after the other.

‘the parade of Hollywood celebrities who troop on to his show’
