    Say it loud and proud DC: Scenes from Capital Pride

    We love the Capital Pride Parade and Festival because it’s one of those weekends where this ladder-climbing, suit-wearing, self-important city lets its hair down.

    Capital Pride – June 13 and 14

    Capital Pride is a week-long event, with the major public activities being the parade (June 13 starting at 4:30) and the festival (June 14 from 12-7).

At the parade, I like to start near the beginning of the parade, watching the participants as they get ready before the parade starts. Then I watch the parade near its beginning on P Street, enjoying both the parade and the spectators (and if you are lucky, you can catch the beads!) The parade has a long winding route, so there is still plenty to see after the parade has passed by…
