Chicago Pride Parade Celebrates Its 45th Year

Parade Route Runs Near Many Planned Property Management Apartments in Lakeview.

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2014) - This year, the Chicago Pride Parade will celebrated its 45th walk through Lakeview. One of the largest and most recognized Pride Parades in the world, the 4-mile route is likely to attract about 750,000 attendees. It is the culmination of Chicago's Pride Month.

The Pride Parade is when Chicago's LGBT community lets it all hang out -- almost completely literally. But parents shouldn't worry -- although it's raucous, it's still a family-friendly event (sort of: think PG-13). Many restaurants, clubs, and merchants offer specials connected with the parade. After the parade, parties continue late into the night.

"The Chicago Pride Parade is one of the greatest shows on Earth," said Jasko Omervic of Planned Property Management, "and it's free. It's a huge party, very friendly, very inclusive, very welcoming to all. It's one of those things you can see in Chicago that you just can't see anywhere else, and our properties are right in the middle of it. From 537 W. Melrose, for example, you can get to the parade route in five minutes, and you're less than 10 minutes from the Boystown stretch, the most popular and vivacious part of the route."

Although the Pride Parade is the signature event of the weekend, there are many other events of the weekend, including a 5k/10k run, a dance, and a food truck festival. For more information on these and other events, visit
