After a two-year pause, Provincetown's Carnival Parade is back and
it's only four weeks away on Thursday, August 18th at 3:00 pm!
With the theme of Monsters, Myths & Legends, our float will be decorated
to celebrate twelve "LGBTQIA+ Legends" who have advanced equality through
the years, and PFLAG Cape Cod, in partnership with Fenway Health and
Cape & Islands Trans Resource Fund, wants you to march with us!
As one PFLAG member recently shared,
"Walking with the PFLAG Cape Cod float at Carnival was a powerful, humbling,
and unforgettable experience. There was so much PFLAG LOVE from
hundreds of grateful bystanders, LGBTQ+ people, and allies. Not to be missed!"

This year's Carnival theme is Monsters, Myths & Legends, and our parade float/truck will be decorated to celebrate twelve "LGBTQIA+ Legends" who have advanced equality through the years! In keeping with the overall parade theme, dress as your favorite monster, myth, or legend, OR, if you'd prefer to participate but don't want to dress in character, a limited number of float-themed t-shirts will be available that day for free. For those unable to walk all or part of the parade route, 8-10 seats will be provided in the bed of our large truck on a first-come, first-served basis.
Traffic heading to Provincetown will get heavy as the day progresses and parking will be very limited, so you are strongly encouraged to carpool! If you'd like to follow our carpool vehicle and truck/float, please meet at 8:30 am at the Burger King/commuter lot at Rt. 6/Rt. 132 exit (exit #68). Once you've arrived in Provincetown, park wherever it is legally allowed and meet up with our float by 1:00 pm at the parade setup/start location at the Harbor Hotel, 698 Commercial Street (NO parking is allowed at the hotel). Roads around the Harbor Hotel will be blocked off at 1:00 pm and the PARADE STARTS PROMPTLY AT 3:00 PM!!!
Once you've signed up to march, an email with more information will be sent to you a few days before the parade. In the meantime, start working on your costume and plan to have a great time parading down Commercial Street in Provincetown's legendary Carnival Parade!
