Today, Saturday, June 11, is the Capital Pride Parade, the annual parade that traverses Dupont Circle, down 17th Street, and across to Thomas Circle. Join thousands of people to watch this landmark event. Note the new start time -- one hour earlier this year -- kicking off at 5:30 p.m. You can view the official parade route and a list of participating contingents here. Advice to the claustrophobic: Dupont Circle or 17th Street too packed? Try New Hampshire Avenue or P Street between 17th and 14th for a great view.
To get you in the mood, take a moment and enjoy our Parade videos from 2009 and 2010, by David Uy and Aram Vartian, respectively.
