Sisolak, Golden Knights join Pride Parade in Las Vegas —PHOTOS

The annual Las Vegas Pride Night parade attracted thousands to downtown Las Vegas on Friday.

The parade kicked off a weekend showcasing Las Vegas’ diversity. Attending the parade were Gov. Steve Sisolak and First Lady Kathy Sisolak, who served as co-grand marshals.

In a tweet, Sisolak said two years ago, he was the first Nevada governor to walk in the parade. “I’m honored to join in person again,” he tweeted.

Miss Nevada Kataluna Enriquez also attended the parade. In June, Enriquez became the first openly transgender contestant to advance to the Miss USA Pageant.

The celebration continues with the Pride Festival from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday at Craig Ranch Regional Park, 628 W. Craig Road in North Las Vegas.
