This is Northern New England's largest Pride Parade and folks from all over will be mingling with the locals to celebrate the achievements of the LGBTQA movement! The parade route runs from Monument Square, down Congress St.,High St., Park St. and ending at Deering Oaks Park. The parade starts at noon and the line up will happen between 10 and 11:30.
