A night pride parade in Sin City – How appropriate!
Gay pride in Las Vegas is a two day event, but with most of the bars and clubs staying open 24h a day don’t count on getting much sleep, the pride its self has all the showmanship you have come to expect from Las Vegas, with feathers and glitter as far as the eye can see.
The parade is a little different from most pride parades as it is a night parade and starts at 8pm. The parade route begins at West Charleston Blvd, and heads north along 4th Street to Ogden Avenue, The main stage is at Bridger Avenue just two blocks south of the Fremont Street, starting with a Parade Pre-Show at 7pm. The parade brings together more than 30,000 spectators to the edges of Fourth Street. As one of only two nighttime parades in Las Vegas each year, the streets were lit up with rainbows and colorful costumes.
On Saturday, about 20,000 attend the Pride Festival, which will take place at the Clark County Amphitheater featuring a beautiful outdoor main stage surrounded by soft, cool grass, plus a
food court and convenient drink stations. There will be more than 100 exhibitors on site. You can relax on the lawn as you are entertained by the festival’s featured performers, as well as great local talent. There is also a Family Activity Zone filled with fun activities for parents and children 12 and under.
In Vegas, gay bars are a little spread out.
