July 27, 2010, 3:22 PM EST
CAW members in the Greater Vancouver Area are gearing up for the 2010 Vancouver Pride Parade, set to take place on August 1. Parade organizers are expecting crowds of over 500,000 to attend the parade, the latest in a string of summer Pride events and one of the largest organized parades in the country.
This year's CAW float will consist of a hybrid-engine public transit bus that is built by fellow CAW members at New Flyer in Winnipeg and that will be decorated with CAW flags and Pride banners.
Pride parades will continue in various locations across Canada throughout the summer. Here is a list of additional locations and dates:
Windsor: August 4-8
Fredericton: Sunday, August 8
Saint John: Saturday, August 14
Montreal: August 12-15
Ottawa: Sunday, August 29
