2008 Seattle Gay Pride Parade

Seattle Out and Proud (SOAP) announced that this year's Gay Pride Parade will be held Sunday, June 29, starting at 11:00 a.m. from the corner of Union St. and Fourth Ave.

It will be limited to approximately
two and-a-half hours in length and should take about an hour to go from
the start to the end.

Last year the Stranger launched the Pride Parade Awards because we wanted to do something to help make the Seattle’s annual Pride Parade bigger, better, and more spectacular. We wanted to give folks an incentive to pull out the stops, to go over the top, and create eye-popping floats and costumes. We’re thrilled to announce that the Pride Parade Awards are back—with big cash prizes for the best floats or marching contingents in this year's downtown Pride Parade on Sunday June 29th—and with a brand new category, The People’s Choice Pride Parade Award.
