About the LGBT Pride Parade
Imagine 5,000 people swishing and sauntering along Downtown St Pete's Bayshore Dr in a dazzling array of sequins, beads, leathers and feathers to celebrate the power and beauty of diversity, with more than 200,000 people cheering them on.
The 15th St Pete Pride Parade promises to continue to show the the state all the beautiful colors of our diverse community, and be a fabulous opportunity for unbridled self-expression and love.
No outside beverages or alcohol may be brought to the Parade. Water and other beverages will be sold throughout the parade route viewing area. In the interest of general safety, please refrain from bringing in the following to the Parade:
- Alcohol (open container laws and city ordinances still apply)
- Inline Skates
- Laser pointers
- Pets or animals (we love animals, but for their safety, leave them at home)
There are several options when coming to St Pete Pride. And as with any large event, parking can always be a challenge. If you plan on driving, we recommend you carpool. St Pete Pride recommends parking in one of the several parking garages in the downtown area.
