Chicago’s Pride Parade got its start as a march in 1970 and is now hailed as one of the most iconic pride events, attracting people of all gender, color and sexuality. The 2019 theme is Millions of Moments of Pride and its bright colors, performance groups, floats and parade entrants—including many Chicago schools—will easily attract and hold a child’s attention. This high-energy celebration may be outside the comfort zone of some parents because of the costumes (or lack of, in some cases) and the boisterous atmosphere, but kids love parades and this is one they won’t soon forget.
