For those of you wondering how the World’s Largest Rainbow Parade went, let me tell you – in photos!

We gathered under the Manhattan Bridge to prepare.

Jessi Arrington, parade founder, gave us a pep talk and went over the parade protocol.

Jacob Krupnick of Girl Walk All Day got his camera ready to film.

Soon, we were in rainbow order and escorted by police to the Brooklyn Bridge, where we began our march.

Shortly after this photo was taken, my camera strap came off and my camera went skidding across the bridge. I put it away until we crossed after that. Luckily it’s fine except for a few dents.

Thanks for getting a picture with me in it, Underground Dining NYC!

The record was a success! 179 people dressed head to toe in a solid colour marched in the World’s Largest Rainbow Parade.

Sure, it’s an activity you could have easily completed in kindergarten, but what a fun and funny way to spend an early Saturday afternoon. The best part of the event was seeing strangers’ surprised smiles as we passed them on the bridge. I was expected far more annoyed bikers and walkers, but everyone seemed to be genuinely happy to see us! Who says New Yorkers are grumps?
