It's going to be one of the biggest Pride events Belfast has ever seen. And with applications from more than 180 groups to take part in the parade - up by over 40 since last year - organisers expect it to be a biggie. Like last year, the route will start and finish at Custom House Square , just a stone's throw from Pride Village over at the Big Fish which will offer everything from food and drink to kids' entertainment.
The parade starts at 1pm from Custom House Square on Saturday 3rd August.
