The parade steps off on Saturday, June 8, 2012 at 4:30 pm.
Metro DC PFLAG has registered and ALL PFLAG chapters and friends are invited to join them !!!
If you’ve never done it before , we think you will find it to be a wonderful exhilarating and memorable experience.
Feel free to bring any special signs that you want.
Parade route is available here: http://www.capitalpride.org/parade/parade-map
We will probably need to be in place by around 4 pm, though our contingent may not actually start walking until 5 pm, depending on where we are in the line-up, and will finish between 6:30 – 7 pm. Last year we lined up between 23rd and 24th on N Street, however, we will not know our exact lineup position until mid-week. We’ll post the exact exact line up position when it becomes available.
The parade kicks off at 4:30. Be sure to bring water and wear comfortable walking shoes.
The parade is very family friendly but NOT pet friendly.
We’ve been told that PFLAG & the Unitarians will once again be next to one another in the parade lineup.
