Pride crowds along Halsted and Broadway thrilled to the Windy City Cowboys, a giant robot rolled out by the t-shirt company, Threadless, the ROTC ( Righteously Outrageous Twirling Corp ) , The Lakeside Pride Freedom Band, and Chicago Spirit Brigade. FINC, the Filipino Pride contingent, had a rocking float in addition to choreographed dancing, but unfortunately the car towing their float broke down in front of Center on Halsted and the float had to be towed. Dykes on Bikes made an impression and PFLAG was as popular as ever, with parents and friends marching along with LGBTs. Grammar schools Nettlehorst and Chicago Waldorf School also marched to great response.
