CHICAGO — Sunday, June 26th marked the 47th annual Chicago Pride Parade, which rolled through the city’s Lakeview and Uptown neighborhoods.

Before the parade was a moment of silence for the victims of a deadly shooting earlier this month at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Hundreds of police officers were stationed throughout the parade’s route amid heightened security concerns. Hundreds of thousands came out in vibrant colors in support of the LGBTQ community.

WGN-TV also had a crew at the parade with Bozo, Tom Skilling, Dean Richards, Dina Bair, Micah Materre, Pat Tomasulo, Sean Lewis and others taking part.
