For nearly four decades, the streets of downtown Orlando would come alive with the year-ending Orlando Citrus Parade. This month, parade organizers announced the end of this signature event.
Come Out With Pride 2018 will honor and celebrate Orlando’s LGBTQ+ community and its allies October 8-14.
It kicks off with a Drag Race 5K through Baldwin Park, and finishes with a big weekend featuring the Come Out With Pride festival at Lake Eola, and the Recovery Brunch at Celine Orlando.
Below is a list of events and other details for Come Out With Pride 2018:
One of the harbingers of the end of the year is when the annual Florida Citrus Parade rolls through downtown Orlando. This year, the event happens on December 30.
Grandstand seating, where the cameras will be, are already sold out, but curbside seating will be available. Get there early if you want a spot, as this is a very popular parade.
The pre-parade show begins at 9pm, and the parade starts at 10am, at the corner of Orange Ave and Robinson Street. The route continues south on Orange Ave, then moves east on Anderson St, to Rosalind Ave, where it turns north. The parade ends at intersection of Rosalind Ave and Robinson St.
