Capital Pride is back, and while there won’t be a traditional Pride Parade, the Capital Pride Alliance will be hosting its first ever Colorful Pridemobile Parade this Saturday, June 12. This event will consist of brightly decorated vehicles following the official Pridemobile trolley. Be forewarned: This year Capital Pride won’t be setting up any portable bathrooms for spectators.

While the Capital Pride Alliance won’t be announcing the list of locations until later this week, MPD has released a list of streets that will be closed to traffic and parking on Saturday.
