Pride Parade Switching Paths

Capital Pride shares route change at ANC meeting

The local blog Borderstan reported Monday that Capital Pride has proposed a route change for this year’s Capital Pride Parade. The proposal was submitted at a March 14 meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2F.

Organizers for Capital Pride told ANC commissioners that the route for the parade, set to take place on Saturday, June 8, will take a slightly different route than its path of the past couple years. Instead of turning south from P Steet NW onto 14th Street NW, the parade will head north. While the most recent iteration of the parade has ended at Thomas Circle, the 2013 route has the parade heading north as far as U Street NW.

According to Borderstan, the ANC commissioners voted to approve the request to support the appropriate street closures.
