Jesus Green, Cambridge Saturday 8 June 2019

CAMBRIDGE PRIDE RIVER PARADE
11am to midday

The River Cam features heavily in the festivities. Usually associated with serene punting trips passing landmarks such as the Bridge of Sighs and Kings College Chapel, part of the Cam will be taken over by a flamboyant flotilla of punts. The UK’s first Pride River Parade will loop up and down the river between Quayside in central Cambridge and Jesus Green from 11am to 12pm. Each punt will be decorated using a colour of the rainbow flag, representing different aspects of Cambridgeshire’s diverse LGBT+ community. The flotilla will carry members of LGBT+ support groups, who are designing their vessels with local artists.

Cambridge City Council has kindly commissioned and funded the Cambridge Pride River Parade 2019.
