The El Paso Sun City Pride hosted their 11th annual pride parade Saturday morning in the El Paso Downtown area.

In celebration of Pride Month, hundreds of people walked on the streets of downtown El Paso to show their support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

For their 11th year, El Paso Sun City Pride celebrated its annual tradition by hosting a weekend full of activities, including the Pride Parade, post-parade brunch, PrideFest for Saturday’s afternoon and a Splash Party that will take place at Wet n’ Wild on Sunday, June 3.

Starting at Houston Park, carnival floats followed the 1.21-mile route that went through  Montana Avenue and Mesa Street to end the parade at San Jacinto Plaza.

Various organization participated in the parade including UTEP’s Queer Student Alliance.
