Austin’s yearly Pride Parade is back. On hiatus due to the pandemic, the parade and festival returns to downtown Austin this Saturday, 8 p.m., at the Texas Capitol. The parade route follows Congress Avenue and ends at the Congress Avenue Bridge. The festival portion begins at 11 a.m. at Fiesta Gardens, 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St. Parking is limited for both the parade and the festival, so attendees are encouraged to get there by walking, biking or using public transportation. Transportation options include the Ann and Roy Butler Hike & Bike Trail, a rented MetroBike and a Capital Metro bus. Find a nearby route by using the Trip Planner feature. Road closures, which can be found here, include San Jacinto (from 15th to 11th), Congress Avenue and bridge (from 11th Street to Barton Springs Road), and 11th Street (from Colorado to San Jacinto).
