Pride on the Canal: Huge Crowds at Amsterdam Water Parade

AMSTERDAM — Hundreds of thousands of spectators lined Amsterdam’s historic canals on Saturday to celebrate Canal Parade, a Pride flotilla of 80 brightly decorated boats packed with people partying, singing and waving rainbow flags, balloons and umbrellas.

Boats representing rights groups, bars, clothing brands and even the Dutch military cruised the waterways slowly during a revival of the hugely popular LGBTQ Pride event which had been canceled for two years in amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
