With a crowd of over 500,000, in 2009, the city closed down its busiest shopping street and the Vancouver Pride Parade route was extended to accommodate the crowds. On Sunday August 1st, 2010, the Parade route will once again travel down Robson Street.
The parade begins at 12:00 noon, Sunday August 1st at Robson and Bute, heads West down the hill to Denman street, follows Denman to Pacific and Beach Avenue and finishes at the Sunset Beach Festival Site.
To accommodate the parade floats, exhibits and hundred of volunteers, Robson Street west of Burrard, and Thurlow Street between Robson and Nelson will be closed from 8am-3pm on Sunday, August 1st.
This is a great opportunity for the shops and restaurants on Robson Street to welcome the thousands of parade revelers into your businesses.
