A bit too much going on and you are a good stop over exposed. For me you need to get in closer and make the image of a smaller number of people, or have one person dominant with the remainder as background. That main person or group must then be sharpp.

Yes too much going on and the focus too far back to give a really immediate effect, to involve us in the scene. I think if this had been the only available viewpoint I would have focused on figures a third of the way into the crowd - say the guy carrying the green banner.
Events like this are fun, happy, colourful, lively, but visually messy. It's about selecting small areas that tell the story - as Paul says, look for smaller groups of people.
Watch them, wait for them to respond to something - that's when you get an image that the viewer can respond to.
