PHOTOS: Annual Pride parade and festival celebrates love and community in Burlington

Burlington – Vermont's Pride week wrapped up Sunday with an annual festival and parade in a burst of rainbow flags and costumes celebrating and supporting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community.

Since 1983, Vermonters have marched to expand LGBTQ+ visibility, highlight the continued fight for equal rights and celebrate love.

This year's theme – ‘Metamorphosis’ – connected artists, activities, events and featured a new parade route and venue. The parade kicked off at 12:30 p.m. at the south end of Church Street and ended at the Waterfront Park with a daylong festival showcasing vendors, art, music and performances.

A colorful event featuring LGBTQ+ community and allies, the event drew people of all ages and backgrounds and educated the community on the traditions and challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community.
