The gay PRIDE Las Vegas parade hosts are sure to keep the crowd pumped as the parade judges tackle the impossible task of crowning the best parade entry. They’re looking for the most creative, most outrageous, most bedazzled example of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer pride.
The block party at the start of the parade will feature a stage with live music, food trucks, beverage stations and exclusive exhibitors. You’ll also be just blocks away from Fremont Street Experience, where you can dive into some real debauchery at the bars, restaurants, casinos, Slotzilla Zipline and the world-famous Viva Vision screen! Best part? The parade is completely FREE to attend.
