The Pride Parade at New York- Larger than Previous Years
It was a 2.5-mile long route. The NEW YORK CITY Pride parade was larger than all the previous years. There were twice the number of marchers if compared with 2018. The crowd of the march was energetically singing a “The Star-Spangled Banner” as an attribute to the colorful flag. It seemed like a very happy event with rainbow colored confetti.
