L.A. Pride in West Hollywood June 10-12, 2016

L.A. Pride takes place next weekend in West Hollywood, California, June 10th-12th, 2016.  The pride parade will happen on Sunday starting at 11AM, and runs along Santa Monica Boulevard between Crescent Heights and Robertson Boulevard.  Get there early, for parking will be a nightmare.  Restaurants along the route will be serving up brunch, Bloody Mary’s and mimosas.  Parallel side streets such as Melrose Avenue and Sunset Boulevard are completely walkable.
