Solvang was bursting with color Saturday during the Valley's inaugural Pride parade that featured a mix of vibrantly-colored floats and locals decked out in showy, rainbow garb playfully dancing to music as the procession rolled through downtown.

The parade concluded at Solvang Park where a family-friendly festival was held featuring music by DJ Keelez and Area 51, a play area, kiddie play area and bumper cars, bounce houses, food vendors and a beer garden.

According to Golzar Meamar, parade organizer and executive director/CEO of SYV Pride, the event "was a huge success."
