This Pride Fest has become the largest single-day event in its city, competing with Ultra Music Festival and other major events for this title.

Last year, the Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival drew 20,000 more people to it than the year before that. Now, as the festival enters its fifth year, more than 125 LGBT vendors, businesses, and performers will come together as food, refreshments, and a family-friendly area are provided for festival-goers.

Groups attending the fest may pay to join the parade and compete to show the best spirit of pride in the most creative way possible. So far, groups as diverse as the Aqua Foundation for Women, Miami Gay Men’s Chorus, and Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ have signed up to participate in the parade.
