Charlotte's annual pride parade and festival kicks off in uptown this weekend, bringing with it drag queens, rainbows, and a slew of outdoor activities and live entertainment. Organizors are expecting more than 150,000 people to attend over the course of the two-day event - about on par with last year's attendance - and more than 6,000 people are expected to participate Sunday's parade, which steps off at 1 p.m.
