HOUSTON (KTRK) --The Houston Pride Festival and Parade will take place on Saturday, June 25, 2016 and you can watch it streaming live right here on abc13.com and on our mobile news app. However, if you are planning to go to the parade, here's what you need to know.
- On Friday, June 24 at 7 pm, McKinney and Walker will be closed between Smith and Bagby. All lanes will reopen on Sunday, June 28 at 3 am.
- Beginning on Saturday, June 25 at 5:45pm, many streets around the parade route and staging area will begin to close for cars (with access only for residents). This area runs from Rusk to St. Joseph Pkwy and Bagby to Main. We highly suggest you don't attempt to drive into the area east of Main after 5:45pm.
- Streets won't re-open to vehicular traffic until after the parade finishes (approximately 11pm) and the Houston Police Dept determines that enough spectators have left the streets. The sooner the crowd disperses, the faster the streets will re-open
