The parade will begin at Magic Island at 10 a.m. It will travel down Ala Moana Boulevard and Kalakaua Avenue to its destination at Kapiolani Park at noon.
Motorists are advised to avoid these roads during the parade.
The parade will be followed by a Pride Fest at the Waikiki Shell and Diamond Head Greens from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The community is invited to enjoy great entertainment, hearty food, music, community stalls, a special Ohana area and more.
The Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation, the organizers behind Honolulu Pride, say there are several reasons why October is designated as Honolulu Pride Month. First, October is LGBT History Month, National Day of Coming Out, and Day of Spirit Against LGBTQ Youth Bullying.
