The police are loath to make a guess as there was developing a rivalry between the Pride Parade and the evangelical's March for Jesus that was held last Thursday...well, not so much a rivalry, but the evangelical's got upset when they tried to claim 5 million people once and the police pointed out the area where it was held could only fit a million, tops. This happened shortly after the Guinness Book of World Records certified the Pride Parade as the largest a couple years ago. So the police no longer release attendance figures.
The parade organization says it was about the same or just slightly larger than was last year at 3.2 million. It certainly didn't seem any smaller than normal and the weather was great for it.
