Pride Bigger Than Texas

When: Sat., July 2, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. & 9 p.m. 2016

What was once a modest gathering in a parking lot has grown into Pride Bigger Than Texas, a vibrant celebration encompassing a festival, parade and after party on the Main Strip. Commencing with a tribute to the Orlando shooting victims, this year’s festival includes a mass wedding, a gay newlywed game and entertainment from dance-pop diva Kristine W. and Pride Championship Westling. Preceded by a one-mile Rainbow Dash and the Krystal Kelly Running of the Queens High Heel Race, the 2016 Pride Parade is grand marshaled by Judge Ron Rangel and Judge Genie Wright.

Price: Festival: $10; parade and block party: free
