Your reading of the title is the same as in the following link :
https://www.ohya-shobo.com/catalog_list_scope.php?print_id=16901

Meaning:

行列 means procession
開帳 means unveiling a Buddhist image

So this print shows a procession to honor Benzaiten

There was a shrine dedicated to Benzaiten in Ueno park :

.. the Shinobazu Pond a popular destination for parties and love affairs. The manmade island contains a shrine to Benzaiten, a deity associated with music and beauty

this is confirmed by :

Some Tokyo shrines [of goddess Benzaiten] include the temple at Shinobazu Pond >不忍池, Ueno

but maybe you already figured it out.
