INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 14, 2014) — People from all walks of life could be found in downtown Indianapolis today for the Indianapolis Cadillac Barbie Pride Parade.

Saturday morning, the circle city pride parade stepped off on Massachusetts Avenue and ended in front of the Indianapolis- Marion County Public Library and was followed by a big part and festival on the American Legion Mall.

The first ever Indianapolis Pride Parade featured one float, an antique truck, some antique cars and a few drag queens, but it has grown to be over two hours long, including 24 floats, 130 units, 175 vehicles and 2,500 walkers.

The festival is now Indiana’s largest LGBT celebration and often praised as the best in the Midwest.
