Thank You, Seattle!
Together, you made Pride 2007 a HUGE SUCCESS!

paradeThank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, entertainers, and the community supporters of the Seattle Pride Parade. Most of all, though, thank you to those in attendance for coming out and celebrating PRIDE with us.

We encourage you to visit the list of businesses that sponsored the Seattle Pride Parade 2007! We all have a choice in how we spend our money - let's support the businesses that support us!

Our theme this year was "Come Together," and that we did! We had an excellent turn out and lots of positive feedback!

A few quick facts:

● Crowd estimates of approximately 230,000 spectators

● 152 registered contingents

● Approximately 200 Motorcycles kicked off the parade including 4 SPD Motorcycles

● 3345 People took part, walking or riding in one of the 125 Vehicles (Cars, trucks & floats) in the Parade.

Thank you, Mark “Mom” Finley, for being our ever-so-fabulous parade announcer.

We also thank our Grand Marshals and Special Guests Dennis Coleman, Kiantha Duncan-Woods, Chuck Lazenby, Jane Abbott Lighty & Pete-e Petersen, Gay Fathers Association, Jenna Drey, Alyson and Reina.

We will have pictures up on the web site soon; so, check out our website and see if we caught you on camera. If you have pictures you would like to share, please e-mail a link or attach digital photos to webmaster@seattlepride.org.

The Seattle Out and Proud Board is already working on plans for the Seattle Pride Parade 2008, scheduled for June 29th, 2008!

We would like to hear from you and to get your feedback about the PRIDE events; so, please join the conversation online or at our next community meeting. Remember, we cannot do this alone; we can only do it together as a strong, supportive community.

Please take a moment and give your feedback and suggestions at our online forum.

Thanks, everybody!
