The streets of New York City are never so festive and energized as they are during the annual Pride March. Outlandish outfits, extravagant floats and spontaneous dance parties blend perfectly with the political components of this civil rights march which got its start back in 1970 on the first anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The march steps off in Midtown at noon (Fifth Avenue and 36th Street) and heads downtown where it winds its way through the streets of the West Village. This event is free and open to the public, though to march in the parade individuals must affiliate themselves with an officially registered group; a list of groups will be posted on the Pride Week website in June.
