Following a two-year break, the greatest LBGTQ+ occasions are reoccurring for the ROC Pride Parade and Festival.

From live music to games and drag sets, the fun kicks off at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 16 with a parade. It starts at Alexander Street and Park Avenue, travels down Park, and then turns down Culver Road to Cobbs Hill.

ROC Pride Collective says more than 140 groups, including 13WHAM, are expected to march along the nearly 2-mile route.

The annual parade and festival mark 50 years since the first organized LGBTQ+ event was held in the city.
