Saskatoon Pride Festival wrapped up on Saturday with a parade through downtown and a Community Fair.

Tara Weiman brought her 3-month-old daughter for her first Pride experience but Weiman said she has seen the parade grow.

"It's grown so much in even the last five years. It seems it has just tripled in size, the amount of people in the parade and the amount of people coming out to see it," she said.

It was an extra special event for Cameron Muir.

"I'm here in support of my daughter who has come out recently," he said.

His daughter, Elsa said the support she felt during the parade was important.

"It's so great meeting my people. I've never seen so many rainbows in one place," she said.

The parade included floats, music, dancing, and a lot of smiles.

Festivities continued at the Community Fair with music, vendors, and a beer gardens in Victoria Park.
