East Hampton Village on Saturday became the first East End municipality to "close its Main Street for a Pride parade," said Tom House, the founder of Hamptons Pride, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness of L.G.B.T.Q.+ issues and aims to build a memorial to gay history in Wainscott.

Between paradegoers and marchers, it's possible that approximately a thousand people were in attendance as the cavalcade made its way east on Main Street, north on Newtown Lane, and down Railroad Avenue before concluding in Herrick Park with a music-and-dance-filled rally.

The Queer Farmers' float was a hit at the parade.
