WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - DC's LGBTQ community is feeling a little more proud this weekend.
Capital Pride Weekend is officially underway, with the DC Pride Parade stepping off Saturday afternoon in Dupont Circle.
It's one of the District's biggest events of the year, which means plenty of fun but also road closures.
Here's what to know if you go:
Capital Pride Parade: The festivities will start at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Dupont Circle Red Line station. The parade will wind through Northwest until ending around 8 p.m. at the 13th St. exit off the U Street Metro station.
Street closures started at noon, and police will tow cars parked along the parade route:
The parade will coincide with a block party lasting until 10 p.m. at Church and 15th streets.
