I live in this neighborhood, so I can vouch that these numbers are real!
The Pride Parade was yesterday in the Uptown and Lakeview neighborhoods and it’s estimated that around a million people showed up to watch it!
That’s on top of the nearly 6,000 who were in the actual parade as well as all the floats too along the 21 block stretch of the parade route!
If you missed it, here’s some sights and sounds from yesterday!
