Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The annual Las Vegas PRIDE LGBTQ+ Night Parade takes place in downtown Las Vegas on Friday, Oct. 8 and Nevada Gov. Sisolak and First Lady Kathy Sisolak will be co-grand marshals, along with Miss Nevada Kataluna Enriquez, at the opening ceremony.

The celebration for the LGBTQ+ community has been underway all week.

Tonight, Las Vegas Pride kicks off the weekend with their annual free parade in Downtown Las Vegas.

The opening ceremony starts at 6 p.m. at the intersection of 4th Street and Bridger Avenue. The parade follows at 7 p.m.

“Together again” is the theme for this year’s Las Vegas Pride Parade celebration after a rough patch of virtual interactions due to the pandemic.

The following day’s festival will be held — for the first time — in the city of North Las Vegas.

“On Saturday, we have our main festival which starts at noon and happens at Craig Ranch Park. It’s a beautiful park with lots of open spaces great for families,” Joslyn Hatfield, Director, Las Vegas Pride said.

“We are thrilled to be together again to celebrate Las Vegas PRIDE live and in-person in Las Vegas, ” said Las Vegas PRIDE Board President Brady McGill.

The festival gets underway on Saturday, Oct. 9 at noon.
