SATURDAY 23 AUGUST, 13:00
A carnival atmosphere will fill the streets of Manchester and is set to enthrall the thousands of spectators - young and old, gay and straight, friends and family - who come down to see the glamorous and the outrageously fabulous people who take part!
Please note - you do not need Big Weekend tickets or wristbands to watch the parade, however, you will need them to get into the Big Weekend site in and around Canal Street afterwards!
Love is love, no matter who it is you love! As we celebrate the year of equal marriage, we want to show the world that love has no boundaries. As such the theme for this year's Parade is LOVE!
This year the parade runs from Liverpool Road, down Deansgate onto John Dalton Street, passes Albert Square and continues onto Princess Street, finishing at the end of Whitworth Street - right by Manchester's Gay Village. Take a look at the Parade Route below:
