Gay Pride Parade is Saturday

The St. Pete Pride Promenade Parade and Street Festival is Saturday, with more than 100 floats decked out in rainbow colors, performers, entertainers and more. It will all be led by special guests (including for the first time, Tampa's mayor in a show of support for the huge event). Parade begins at Georgie's Alibi, 3100 Third Avenue N, moves to Central Avenue and runs east to 21st Street. A street festival follows, with nearly 200 vendors lining Central Avenue between 21st and 28th streets. Don't miss the ROTC marching by (that would be the Righteously Outrageous Twirling Corps). 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Free. Central Avenue and 28th Street. (727) 279-5428.

Also Saturday: Faces of HIV: The mobile art exhibit depicting the lives of Florida residents living with HIV and AIDS through portraits, video interviews and journal writing comes to St. Petersburg in part of St. Pete Pride. 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Free. Grand Central District, 2429 Central Ave. (727) 828-7006.
