This year, we are anticipating over 130 organizations and groups participating in the PrideMarch representing thousands of people….more than the Veterans Day Parade, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette! Once again led by the Dykes on Bikes contingent, this year’s parade participants will consist of a caravan of LGBT organizations, community groups, corporations, and politicians.
This year, we’re excited to welcome The Cadets, the oldest continually operating Division I group in Drum Corps International. The corps is known for pushing the artistic envelope of innovation and has won nine World Championships since 1983, becoming the first corps to win three consecutive titles in 1985. The Cadets have performed at a wide variety of highly public non-drum corps events; including the Statue of Liberty rededication in 1986 and the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Olympic Summer Games in Atlanta.
The March begins at the corner of Grant Street & the Blvd. of the Allies, proceeds down Grant Street, turns left onto Fifth Avenue, and finally a right onto Liberty Avenue. The grandstand will be located at the PrideFest entrance at Liberty Avenue and Sixth Street.
