I can say two words and then just pretty much fill the rest of this space with one long HEEEEEEY. The words are Pride Parade. As in gay pride. As in the grandest celebration of them all. If you’ve never been you seriously have no idea what you’re missing — more glitter and fluorescent wigs than you’ve ever seen in your life balanced out by the absolute fewest clothes. Like we’re talking more flesh than a trip to Hurricane Harbor and decidedly better looking flesh, too. The parade kicks off at 2 p.m. Sunday, and if you have the foolish idea of doing any business located on Cedar Springs Boulevard between Wycliff Avenue and Turtle Creek Boulevard, do yourself a favor and knock it out Saturday because the crowd will be so thick, you couldn’t stir it with a bedazzled baton. Parking is a nightmare so remember cabs, Uber and the DART rail are your friends. Learn more and relive last year’s parade at dallastavernguild.org.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
