Indy Pride Parade And Festival
A warm, sunny June day brought out a record crowd to this year's Indy Pride Fest and Parade. Crowds easily surpassed a record 25,000 people two years ago. Here are some of the images along Mass Ave I captured this morning from the parade, which started at College & Massachusetts Avenue and ended at Vermont & Pennsylvania at University Park where the Pride Fest took place. This year's Grand Marshal was Del Shores, who is best known for writing and producing Sordid Lives and Southern Baptist Sissies. Several elected officials were on hand, including Rep. David Orentlicher (D), City County Councilors Scott Keller (R), JoAnn Sanders (D), Dane Mahern (D), Jackie Nytes (D) and Marion Co. Auditor Billie Breaux (D). Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) and Mayor Bart Peterson (D) sent letters of support for the event.
