Fort Lauderdale’s social scene will be focused on Stonewall Pride weekend in Wilton Manors this weekend. The festivities kick off Saturday on Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors around noon, and the Pride Parade kicks off on Saturday at 7:00 pm. The parade will travel along Wilton Drive from the High School on the south end of the drive and head north/east towards Five Corners. You can view the parade anywhere along Wilton Drive. There will also be bleacher seating available at various locations up and down the drive.
Live music and entertainment will be playing throughout the day with a main stage right in front of the Shoppes Of Wilton Manors on the drive. And of course all the bars and restaurants will have outdoor facilities set up to encourage any additional festivities.
The annual contest for the best parade entries is sure to spark some competition again this year. There are two prize categories, the “Over the Top, Grand Prize Float” prize will be presented to the float with the best decorations, music and enthusiasm. The second prize category is “Best Walking Group” will be judged on the the best overall concept and visual appeal.
At the end of the evening the bars should be rocking until the last patron is tossed back onto the drive.
