Pride Weekend.



So glad it's almost the weekend. Lots of fun things planned. Katie is coming into town for a visit - hooray! Natalie and I going to shop for bridesmaids dresses tomorrow. And to top it all off - it's the Atlanta Pride Festival weekend, with almost all of the activities taking place in my neighborhood. The highlight of the festival is the Pride Parade on Sunday.

I am excited because even though I've lived here for three years I've never managed to see the parade and this year I'm going to. It goes right by our apartment so all Andrew and I have to do is step outside and watch the marchers, dancers and floats go by.

Some interesting facts:

Number of people who marched up Peachtree Street in Atlanta's first Pride parade in 1970 - 125

Number of marchers and spectators who jammed Midtown during last year's parade - 80,000

All I can say is.....wow. I'm looking forward to seeing it all.
