article imageEdmonton Pride Parade Expands Special

By Paula Kirman     Jun 8, 2014 in World
Edmonton - Edmonton showed its pride in a big way on June 7. The annual Pride Parade featured more floats and entries than ever before.
Around 80 organizations, businesses, churches, and unions walked the parade route, taking over an hour to pass by the audience who lined the street to watch. Last year's parade only took around 45 minutes.
This year also saw a number of firsts. The Premier of Alberta took part in the actual parade this year for the first time ever, as Premier Dave Hancock waved from a car. Last year, Premier Alison Redford gave a speech at the end of the parade route in Churchill Square, but did not walk in the actual parade.
As well, Edmonton OIlers' Captain Andrew Ference walked in the parade - the first Edmonton OIler to take part in a Pride Parade.
Here is a look at some of the colourful festivities.
