Interesting timing though, because this week I started hearing rumors that a group wants to move the Pride celebration next year to June in Fair Park. The reasons and motivation are all over the place, but from what I'm understanding:
1. Cedar Springs and Throckmorton will be under construction throughout the summer and early fall next year, making the parade impossible.
2. Attendance is capped at around 50,000 attendees along Cedar Springs (Houston apparently draws hundreds of thousands more) and parking is a "nightmare".
3. Reverchon Park will no longer be available for pride festival due to SWL baseball
I have a feeling this will be in the news soon. There are two dueling petitions:

It is the first such marker ever placed in Texas.
