A colorful crowd flocked to downtown Bellingham on Sunday, July 10 for the Bellingham Pride Parade.

The annual weekend festival centers on a family picnic on Saturday, July 9, at Bloedel Donovan Park and a Sunday, July 10, parade through downtown Bellingham, followed by activities at Depot Market Square, including vendors, children’s activities and appearances by local and state dignitaries. The noon parade started at Ohio Street and Cornwall Avenue and followed Cornwall to Depot Market Square.

Bellingham’s pride festival, which began 16 years ago, follows June National Gay and Lesbian Month to take advantage of summer weather.
