NOW: ’Going to be a good one’: Milwaukee Pride Parade returns June 5 🏳️‍🌈

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Among the weekend of festivities to celebrate pride in Milwaukee this weekend is the Pride Parade.

It's the first parade since 2019. 

Organizers say this one has more sponsors than ever before and financially they're in great shape.

There are 110 entries and people should expect to see a lot of color, animals, and really just about anything. 

There are few rules for the parade because they want people to express themselves in any way they can. 

It's the first time Gov. Tony Evers will walk in the parade along with Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson and Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley. 

There is one issue this year, a lot of people want to be in the parade but they desperately need volunteers to help do crowd control and carry the flag. They expect more than 5,000 people to be in it and say if they can get around 40 more volunteers to come help, that will do it. 

"I really think this is going to be a good one. Everyone seems to be wanting and just can't wait for the day," said Jim Melotte, president of the Milwaukee Pride Parade. 

The Milwaukee Pride Parade is set for Sunday, June 5 at 2 p.m. It's expected to last until about 4 p.m. The parade will go down 2nd Street from Greenfield north to Oregon.
