Chicago’s Gay Pride Parade and Pride Festival are being split up this year.

In the past, Gay Pride Month ended with 72 hours of celebrations; but this June the parade will be held the weekend after Pride Fest, a food, arts and entertainment fair.

The change is partly to ease the pressure on Chicago police who patrol the big events.

850,000 people attended last year’s Pride Parade.
