“This is like the first in-person event we’ve been able to have for pride in about two years, so i think everybodies just kind of feeling the energy, despite the heat wanting to suck all of the energy out, everybodies still really excited to be here and that’s incredible,” said Kseniah Pidskalny, participant.

The parade finished up at 3rd Avenue and Victoria Bridge, on the festival grounds where they had a beer garden, and a family fun area.
