Pride Parade with Ellis Neighborhood Assc

  • Copley Square

Join the Ellis Neighborhood Assc in the annual Boston Pride Parade

Starting at noon on June 10th, a glorious Saturday afternoon in early summer, an estimated million spectators will cheer over 25,000 people marching from Boylston Street to City Hall Plaza (by way of the South End) in Boston’s Pride Parade.  They will represent numerous churches, schools, associations, clubs, companies, politicians, bars and sports teams but [still] only ONE Boston neighborhood association.  I am proud to say that the one neighborhood association is the Ellis South End Neighborhood Association.   Please join your Ellis, and other South End, neighbors for an easy, fun walk in a very important parade.  (See http://www.bostonpride.org/parade/  for info.)  The route will start somewhere near or on Boylston St. close to Copley Sq. from there onto Clarendon to Tremont to Dartmouth, back to Boylston, down to Charles, up Beacon by the State House and on to City Hall Plaza—about 2 miles at a gentle, dancing amble.  The parade does take place rain or shine, so don’t be daunted by the very small chance of a sprinkle or two. 

 

If you’re not an Ellis member, march (& party) with us and ask your neighborhood association to consider officially marching next year.  If you’ve got special T shirts, they’re fine to wear but the parade rules only allow one banner per marching group.  

Questions?  Contact Ellis Marshalls Bill Gregor at elliswine@mindspring.com (Cell:  617-510-9534) or John Chambers at johnH.Chambers@gmail.com (Cell:  617-785-4189).  

Sorry, no refunds after 6/8 for the folks looking for a good time in a lovely garden without marching.
