San Diego Pride Parade 2010
Thousands of spectators lined the streets of Hillcrest last Saturday to watch the annual Pride Parade, one of the most popular summertime events in San Diego. Here's a report from Gwen Baldwin of Summit UU Fellowship in Santee.
The Old Town Trolley (arranged by First UU Church in Hillcrest) was pretty full. Summit had 12 parasol folks, 1 or 2 marchers, and 4 folks on the trolley. There were also participants from First Church and its South Bay campus. I got to our area, practiced our (parasol) routine and then watched the parade until it was time to hop in with the group. I think the heat wave kept folks away. I had four cancellations because of it. Too bad since we ended up with a break in the weather. I will tell you that it was the fastest moving Pride Parades I have ever been in. Once we started, we just kept moving and the cool breeze was wonderful. The crowd was enthusiastic so the Parasol Team felt appreciated. I am sure the marchers felt so, too.
