Chicago Pride Parade canceled for second straight year due to COVID-19
COVID-19 has claimed Chicago’s Pride Parade yet again. Organizers on Wednesday announced the Boystown celebration has been canceled for a second straight year as the city weathers its latest coronavirus surge. The parade, which regularly drew upwards of 100,000 people along its colorful North Side route in pre-pandemic years, had initially been pushed back from its usual last weekend of June to Oct. 3 in the hopes of getting more attendees vaccinated for a safer gathering. But with the Delta variant raking the nation, parade coordinator Tim Frye said, “We were very naïve in that belief.”
