Making a US football parade!

WOOOO!!!

Check this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF3-AP6INY0

Does anyone know how to make lots of blender objects, i.e. footballers, cheerleaders, etc, to move along paths and in formations?

I’ve been trying to work out how to make a virtual parade for months now, and I’ve never got close to a solution. PLEASE HELP!!!

MANY MANY thanks to whoever can help me!

The simplest yet most complicated approach would be to make a bunch of people, animate them ALL and then move them with Python.
