Chester’s Pride brings thousands of people to the city each year for their annual charity event. This year Pride was rescheduled due to bad weather.
This years Pride was re-scheduled for 22nd September, previously cancelled due to stormy weather conditions.
Many still came to Chester on the original Pride date as accommodation hd been booked, gigs arranged and get together’s at various pub, restaurants and bars and Chester was booming.
Chester Pride 2019 determined to go ahead this time no matter what the weather was forecasting. The crowds gathered in great number along the streets and up high on Chester rows despite early weather warnings of rain and thunder. What started as a drab dull day ended up with amazing colours filling the city.
The parade set off at 12 noon on an extended route this year from the Crown court and military museum car park, I headed across the road (a stones throw away) to see what was going on with my family in tow. From the Courts the parade set off and up lower bridge street then headed right along towards the Roman amphitheatre. Next was back around and under the the Eastgate clock, past the cathedral and Town Hall then down Bridge street.
The parade and crowds made it an incredible day for Chester Pride, I loved the fire engine, dragon, free hugs and if you left your car on the court car park please own up 🙂 Did you go to Pride today, if so let us know in the comments below…
