LAS VEGAS -- Some 10,000 people are expected to show up for tonight's Pride Parade celebrating southern Nevada’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
The parade happens downtown and that is where we find News 3's Amber Dixon. The pride parade is sure to create some traffic issues.
More grand than any other pride parade ever held in Las Vegas, its the 15th annual Pride Night Parade presented by MGM Resorts International.
Join us from 7 to 10 p.m. in downtown Las Vegas for the most glamorous, glittering spectacle ever created by the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community of Southern Nevada.
This year’s Pride Night Parade, led by our Parade Grand Marshal Edward Padilla and Celebrity Grand Marshals from the cast of Divas Las Vegas, features Las Vegas’ gay and straight business community, nonprofit organizations, GLBT service agencies, civic groups, and churches as well as SNAPI’s royalty.
Don’t forget to come early to grab the best spot and pre-party with PRIDE at MEET Las Vegas (at the corner of 4th Street & Bridger Ave. Then, when the parade ends, make sure to keep the party going at the official after party at Club Metro in the Q Central (the Commercial Center at 953 East Sahara Ave.)
