We Love A Parade! Enjoy Uptown Pride on Sunday

The green line is the parade route
In the unlikely event you haven't heard, the 49th Pride Parade will kick off in Uptown on Sunday.

The parade begins at Montrose and Broadway at noon, but the celebrations will begin much earlier, since the streets around the intersection will provide the staging area for the 150 groups participating in the parade. Ald. Cappleman invites you to drop by his office, which is located in the staging area (4544 N Broadway) prior to the parade.

Parking restrictions will be in effect between 5am and 8pm on Sunday. Please check the map on the right for the Uptown restrictions. A complete list of closures can be found here. Police warn that tows will begin promptly at 5am. We suggest moving your car as soon as possible if you are currently parked on a restricted street.

Organizers also warn that there will be $1000 fines written for drinking on the public way during the parade.

Additionally, "Rooftop parties will not be allowed on the parade route during the Pride Parade or after the parade. In addition, balconies and porches will not be occupied past capacity and items are not to be thrown from balconies and porches onto the street."

CTA has an entire page dedicated to Parade Day, including the rerouting of buses.

Enjoy the day, which is projected to have mild temps (63 - 75 degrees), spread some joy and pride, and be #UptownProud!
