Local organizers say the annual San Diego Pride Parade attracted 300,000 people. It’s the largest single-day civic event in the region and among the largest Pride parades in the United States.

The Saturday, July 15, 2023, march started at 10 a.m. The 1.5-mile parade of rainbows begin at the Hillcrest Pride Flag at University Avenue and Normal Street. The route turned south on Sixth Avenue, left on Balboa Drive and ended at Quince Drive.
