The past week has been a fairly busy week for the West End with the happening of the Vancouver Pride Festival. Various events and parties happen throughout the week but the most popular one which brings visitors from all the neighbouring communities of Metro Vancouver would have to be the Pride Parade, or at least it seems that way.
I don’t know the best way to describe the Pride Parade but this is the second year I have seen it and of course, photographed it. It is the most energetic, fun and colourful parade I have ever witnessed in a city. I guess the best way to describe it better would be just to show some of the photos I took.
Keith and I walked up and down the parade route during the day. We started near Robson and Nicola and slowly made our way down to Denman and Barclay shooting as much of the parade as possible. Yes I did manage to shoot 895 photos in total. I deleted 130 off the bat, though only posted 141 to share. It’s really hard to decided what photos to post online, but hopefully the ones I posted online help show the parade off.
You can check out the rest of the photos I uploaded over on my 2010 Vancouver Pride Parade set on Flickr.
The parade was long and enjoyable. The streets were crowded with spectators from all over the Lower-Mainland. The parade ended up at Sunset Beach for some more festivities, though I went home to process all my photos.
Did you get out to see the Pride Parade this year? If so did you enjoy it?
