Thousands Turn Out for PrideFest in Downtown St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, MO, (, June 30, 2013 -The Official Pride Parade is always held on the Sunday of festival and is the highlight of PrideFest weekend for many parade attendees and festival goers. This year, the parade took place on Sunday, June 30th in downtown St. Louis.

Each year, thousands of people descend upon Pride St. Louis to view the second largest parade in the City of St. Louis. This year, the Arch provided the backdrop for the parade on Market Street and the rain held off until late afternoon.

This is a year of first for Pride St. Louis as the celebration moved into the heart of the city from Tower Grove Park with a Market St. Parade and two-day Festival around Soldier's Memorial. A special area was set up vendor booths, live entertainment and family activities on both days.

The Pride Parade has served as a vehicle for legislators and candidates to illustrate their support of the LGBT community and the causes the organization supports. Both St. Louis City and County elected officials participated in the parade.

St. Louis Mayor Francis G. Slay said he is happy to welcome the event to downtown. "I am very pleased to welcome Pride St. Louis and our parade to the city's best parade route," Slay said. "I also predict the biggest party Downtown has seen in decades."

The parade also serves as a means to showcase the creative talents of hundreds of businesses, non-profit organizations and community groups and spread their message to all who attend.

Another first this year included the representation of the military in the parade, ending with a wreath laying ceremony at Soldier's Memorial for those that fell before the "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy was lifted. For more information, visit
