After all the little social media teasers, Rihanna was on the road on Kadooment Day in all her splendour in the Aura Experience band.

She was busy on social media over the past few days, showing off a new turquoise hair colour and asking her 55.3 million Instagram followers if they were ready for the road.

Today she also showed off her bedazzled costume with green, pink and turquoise feathers in a few snapshots, and gave her followers glimpses of the clamouring crowd from her perspective.

And of course, selfies were also the order of the day.

All along the route starting at the National Stadium in Waterford, persons could be heard asking 'Where is Rihanna? ', 'Is that her?' as the Aura Experience band went pass.

Spectators on Black Rock Main Road were able to see her 'live and in full colour' as she waved and smiled at them from on top the truck. She even went down on to the road at one point.

Also spotted with Aura Experience was Formula 1 champion driver, Lewis Hamilton, who also went into the street at one point along the route.

He has had a taste of Kadooment before, having jumped in the same band with Rihanna in 2015, and had vowed to return.
