River City Pride Parade 2022

Saturday, October 1, 2022
12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


When and where:  Please put the River City Pride Parade on your calendar for Saturday, October 1.  We will line up sometime between noon and 2:00 p.m. at Willow Branch Park.  We’ll send another email when we have a more specific line-up time.

Hat and Water Bottle: It can be hot walking, especially if it’s a sunny day.  We recommend that everyone wear a hat unless we have a cold snap.  We will have a limited number of water bottles available and will try to have room in the cooler for any water bottles you bring.  The parade route is a mile and a half.

Getting Back to Your Car After the Parade:  We line up at Willow Branch Park, but the Parade ends at Riverside Park.  If possible, please “buddy up” with someone else who’s driving.  Leave one vehicle at Riverside Park well before the Parade, leaving plenty of time to ride together to Willow Branch Park in the other vehicle to join with the BBUUC group.  We will have one or two vehicles to transport people back to Willow Branch after the Parade, but traffic is awful, and you might have to wait a long time for us to pick you up.

Very Limited Space to Ride: Donna Zimmerman has generously offered her beautiful convertible to lead the BBUUC entry. Space is very limited, but if you want to participate and cannot walk the parade route (1.5 miles), please email Elizabeth DeCoux right away at edecoux@comcast.net to see if there is still room in the car.

We have plenty of swag for you to throw to the crowd, and we’re looking forward to a fun time!

Location: Historic Willow Branch Park
