What’s Going on for Long Beach Pride Weekend 2016

This weekend marks the opening of the 33rd Annual Long Beach Pride Festival and Parade. Known for its boisterous crowd and colorful nature, this festival is a Southern California favorite and draws thousands of visitors into the city every year. This years theme is Solidarity Through Pride and the festival once again hopes to raise awareness and understanding for the entire LGBT community.

The festival runs this Saturday and Sunday and is jammed packed with live music, parties and contests to keep you plenty busy. The most well known part of this two day event is the Pride Parade, which runs down Ocean Blvd. on Sunday morning. The parade starts at 10:30 am, but get there early because it can be crowded and parking is a challenge.

The parade is free to attend, and tickets to the festival can be purchased at LongBeachPride.com
