After a long fight for gay rights in the United States, Friday was a victorious day when the Supreme Court ruled the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. This happening at the beginning of the annual Twin Cities Pride weekend in Minneapolis.
Sunday morning was the annual parade and from what the news stations are reporting, there were over 150,000 in attendance. It was over 2 hours long and a thrilling procession of pride and happiness for the LGBT community.
The parade is a huge draw but throughout the event there are other activities including music, food, a local vendor area, a 5K run and an art show. Most activities are based at Loring Park in Minneapolis.
We also managed to get down to see the 35W bridge that was lit up in stunning rainbow colors to mark the occasion.
While there might be a few outfits you'll have to explain to your children, for the most part the Twin Cities Pride festival events are safe and fun for all to attend. Plus, like any parade, there's plenty of freebies and candy handed out :)
