The annual Capital Pride celebration is this week (it actually started this past weekend). As usual, there's a full slate of events and activities all this week.
For a lot of people the highlight of Capital Pride is the Pride Parade and Festival. It's this Sunday in Albany's Washington Park. The parade starts at noon at State Street and Sprague Street, heads down State, turns right on Lark, and then right on Madison back up to the entrance of Washington Park (map). And check it out: AOA Mary will be one of the parade float judges this year.
The festival starts right after the parade in the park. The headliner entertainment this year is American Idol finalist Kimberly Locke.
