Celebrate Gay Pride on fabulous Miami Beach on Saturday, April 16.

Join Miami Beach City Mayor Matti Bower, Grand Marshal Andy Cohen from Bravo TV, your friends, family and allies to celebrate the 3rd annual Miami Beach Gay PRIDE Parade & Festival. It's a celebration of the extraordinary strength, beauty and contributions of South Florida’s LGBT community, and an exciting, free, all-day event that features a parade and a Festival with exciting celebrity presentations and musical performances, LGBT-friendly vendors and businesses, refreshments and food, and a family-friendly play zone.

Last year's pride event brought out over 35,000 people from all walks of life and places across Florida-- and the world-- making Miami Beach Gay Pride our city's largest one-day event. This year will be even better, as we celebrate our empowered, inspiring, everyday heroes with a weeklong schedule of super-special events, and an official PRIDE Cruise!

And don't miss the Parade!

The 3rd Annual Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade An Extraordinary Day OUT

Ocean Drive, Saturday, April 16, 2011, Starting at Noon

It’s time to show the world our extraordinary beauty, strength, unity, talent, and creativity! And what better way to kick off our Extraordinary Day OUT than with a big, bold, colorful parade

Starting at noontime on April 16, the length of Ocean Drive along the Art Deco district will be closed to traffic and open wide to our proud South Florida lesbian, gay, bi, and transgender families, Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower, our friends, co-workers and allies-- along with Pride sponsor organizations, groups and businesses.

Come out and proudly be part of this important occasion-- and a grand day of fun.

Sign up now to put together a spectacular float with all the bells and whistles, showcasing your group, business or organization, or simply walk our parade proudly with your chosen family and friends— and don’t forget your pet, Fido or Fifi! Let your imagination and sense of pride guide you

The parade route will run from 5th to 15th Street on Ocean Drive, ending at the Miami Beach Pride Festival and Expo. Join other PRIDE community members, our Mayor and our incredibly inspiring LEGACY group of LBGT couples who have 20+ loving years together, as we show our extraordinary pride and unity at the 2nd Annual Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade
