Spots available to watch parade with Don Wheaton
The City of Edmonton is world-renowned for its progressive and inclusive attitude. One of the annual highlights of the summer is the annual Edmonton Pride Parade, Saturday (June 4). This family-friendly event celebrates and respects LGTBQ culture in the city and is one of the main pieces of the 2016 Edmonton Pride Festival which runs until June 12. Don Wheaton has picked out an array of cars representing (as closely as possible) the colors of the rainbow along the parade route. The dealership welcomes as many people as will fit to set up shop on our sidewalk with chairs to watch the floats and other parade participants go by.
