Saturday's Pride parade was a gay old time, indeed. It featured a beautiful sunny afternoon, thousands of people lining downtown streets to watch and around 200 floats—including a Coast/Hillcrest Volkswagen team effort that featured Windom Earle playing for nearly 2 hours on the back of a flatbed truck. (After the parade, a cop who was all like "rules, rules, rules" crushed any idea that the band could ride to Antigonish for their Saturday night Evolve gig on the flatbed.)
Conspicuously present: Parade grand marshal Robin Metcalfe, Halifax Member of Parliament Megan Leslie and her roller-skating "MP Hammer" crew, mayor Peter Kelly walking with a box of mints as if it was the Christmas-in-July parade, councillor Dawn Sloane on a float rocking a black latex biker outfit because it was Pride. Conspicuously absent: Premier Darrell Dexter, Fergie.
