After the hugely popular HSBC Celebration of Light fireworks came to an end last night, the stage was set for the just as hugely popular pride parade and its very colorful participants. It seems like every year is a record year for this event. So much so that the organizers extended the route this year and it was estimated that the parade would last 2 1/2 hours. When you consider the fact that you have to get there one hour early or so to get a good spot, it means you’ll be standing on the sidelines for more or less four hours (the closer you are to the start line, the quicker it’s over).
