2016 Bank of America Charlotte Pride Parade Award Winners

If you missed the Bank of America Charlotte Pride Parade last Sunday, whew, you missed quite a treat. Over 140 marching units and some 3,500 individual marchers and tens of thousands of onlookers. It was fab.

Our parade emcees and judges — Delighted Tobehere, Bélen Gómez-Jordana and Matt Harris — kept their eyes peeled for parade award winners this year. They were announced on the Wells Fargo Stage that afternoon, but in case you missed it, here are some wonderful photos and the full list of 2016 parade award winners…
