Pride Fest Parade

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Lomas got a lot more colorful Saturday thanks to the Albuquerque Pride Parade.

It was a chance to let loose, enjoy lots of bright costumes, and dance all to support the cause of LGBTQ equality.

The parade started at Washington around 10 a.m. and ended at EXPO New Mexico.

Each year the annual event draws close to 40,000 spectators.

Pride Fest is currently still underway with music, dancing, local vendors and the crowning of Miss Mister New Mexico Pride.
