Big Day for Balloon Shops

A Pride parade must be like Christmas for anyone in the balloon business. The 30th Annual Vancouver Pride Parade is a LARGE event. The route has grown over the years, it's now a smidge over a mile and a half. It was perfect parade weather and over 380,000 spectators were expected along the route.

This is one of the staging areas on Thurlow St.

Google marched in the NYC Pride Parade this year with similar balloons arches. Interestingly enough, the rainbow colors represent Google's icon as well as the pride parade.
