What’s a parade without the floats? These are riding this year

One could hardly imagine the Prague Pride Saturday rainbow parade without the floats. This time it’s going to be almost 20 of them:

Three exclusive MINI Cooper cars will ride at the front of the parade carrying award-winning LGBT activists. They will receive the sash and the Marshal titles before we start off.

The first float will be the Prague Pride, with the female DJ Kierastoboy on it. And the music will be worth every penny.

It is likely that the most attention will be commanded this year by the Pirate float. Or rather Pirate boat – because it represents the Czech political party of the Pirates, which has decided to float with us through the streets of Prague this year. Be ready for bubble-makers and confetti cannons! If you are lucky you might leave with a Pirate wristband.

The car of the Jsme fer (equal marriage) campaign will be a beautiful historical Ford T, which will carry two even more beautiful brides.

One of the members of the Coalition for Marriage is Amnesty International, an organization which a huge impact with its fight for human rights. Their float will be part of the parade, too.

You will meet Vodafone too in the parade. They will be represented by the traditional drummers, but this year Vodafone will also have an car. And the queer film festival Mezipatra will be present in a similar way.

For us it is very important to have big companies represented at the parade, because their support has helped us make Prague Pride a household name. We will be very happy to see this year autos from Microsoft, IBM, Google, Accenture, Amazon and EXXON. ADP and Ebay are other big brands participating with floats.

A newcomer to this year’s parade will be our main hotel partner Mama Shelter. We trust it their auto will be just as diverse and fun as the design of their hotel. It will play gypsy music with DJ Gypsyrobot (you might know him from previous edition from the ARAART auto, which was quite a ride).

You will surely notice the senior cars. Two comfortable limousines will carry respected LGBT activists with earlier birthyears.

The Quiet Zone

A new thing this year is a quiet zone. We respect those who don’t like loud music and for the first time we will reserve a segment in the parade without a primary source of loud music.

We welcome families with young children, which will be able to ride the excursion little train. We also welcome people accompanied at the parade by pets. In the quiet zone there will be an car from the Hunter company which will ensure that your dogs have water. Find the blue Beetle (VW) and say the password `thirst` (zizen, in Czech).

At Wenceslas Square (Vaclavske Namesti), before we start, the quiet zone will be at the beginning of Opletalova street, and then will take its own place in the parade.

We are looking forward to see you there and wish you Happy Pride!
