Heartland Pride Parade move to Council Bluffs

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — An annual parade organized by a gay and lesbian nonprofit group will move from Omaha to Council Bluffs.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/19nr4Ns ) the parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. in downtown Council Bluffs.

More than 35 floats will join in the Heartland Pride Parade, which typically is held in Omaha but had to be moved because of the College World Series. Due to that event, there weren’t enough police officers to block streets in Omaha.

The parade is hosted by Heartland Pride, which advocates for the local gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.

The parade is part of the 28th annual Live Proud event, which began Thursday and continues through Sunday at Omaha’s Stinson Park at Aksarben Village.
