This year, the parade has a new starting location due to West Victoria Street construction, but it will still carve a familiar path through the downtown core.

In the past, the parade began in Riverside Park. This year, marchers will gather at the former Stuart Wood elementary, at St. Paul Street and Third Avenue, before heading toward Victoria Street.

“This new location will feature the same incredible community booths, main stage entertainment and food trucks that were part of our event in the past, but with a more urban, block party feel that we’re very excited about,” Kamloops Pride president Sam Numsen said.

To see the parade, spectators should head to Victoria Street at 10 a.m. and join the post-parade festivities afterward at Stuart Wood until 3 p.m.

Those looking to march in the parade can go online to kamloopspride.com/parade to register. The deadline for organizations is Aug. 5, while individuals can register until the morning of the parade.
