Kootenay Pride parade packs Baker Street

Hundreds took part in the colourful procession through Nelson



The Kootenay Pride parade rolled through downtown Nelson on Sunday afternoon. Hundreds took part in the colourful procession, led my local MLA Michelle Mungall and featuring dozens of floats and banners representing local LGBT groups and allies. Baker Street was packed with spectators who followed the parade to the Kootenay Commons parking lot for the rally that followed the parade.
