Kootenay Pride Weekend is back.

And there’s nothing more exciting than the hundreds of spectators lining Baker Street in Nelson Sunday afternoon for the Kootenay Pride Parade.

After a few years of being locked up due to the pandemic, Kootenay Pride uncorked a banner weekend culminating with parade Sunday.

Beginning with the flag raising at Nelson City Hall, Kootenay Pride week was a wave of celebration.

Sunday, Baker Street was lined with people waving rainbow flags and clever signs to cheer on the parade.

From rainbow face paint to homemade signs encouraging acceptance, equality and love, members of the community were everywhere to be seen in the crowd and the parade itself.

Motorcycles, scooters and bikes participated in the annual Pride Parade.

Pride flags were everywhere, including the parade.

Many businesses and community groups, including Kootenay Co-op Radio, were part of the parade.
