First we attended the Boston Pride Pre Parade Press Conference at the Hard Rock Café next to the historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace for our briefing by Sylvain Bruni, President of Boston Pride & Martha Plaza, Parade Chair who stated that this year’s parade will be the largest in Boston Pride’s 46 year history. “Solidarity Through Pride” is the theme & 40% of the groups are marching for the first time with more floats, over 500,000 spectators & to top it all off the most massive rainbow-colored pride flag the city has ever seen. Plaza stated, “It’s nice to see the rise in the diversity of the types of companies that we’re able to accommodate. More & more organizations are using the parade to demonstrate their support & the diversity of their workforce & to show they stand beside their employees. A total of 258 groups will be taking part in this year’s march, with 28 floats & 80 vehicles among them, for the first time ever, a quite massive party bus from Budweiser” At the press conference we got a taste of the fabulous entertainment that will take place at the Boston Pride Festival at Boston’s City Hall Plaza following the parade & the best DJ in New England DJ Andrea spun a few tunes who will be spinning at parties all through the weekend.
HAPPY PRIDE BOSTON!!
