Gallery: Winnipeg Pride parade brings out the rainbow of colours

Thousands took to the streets in downtown Winnipeg Sunday for the 2013 Pride Parade.

The colourful hour-long party started and ended at the Manitoba Legislative Building and stopped traffic as it wound its way down York and Broadway Avenues like a rainbow snake.

As always the parade was filled with floats, marching bands, drag queens, bubbles, sparkles, a lot of neon and so much laughter.

Here’s what caught Metro’s eye at the parade.
