The recent annual pride parade in New York City served as both a meaningful civil rights demonstration and an exciting celebration of love and unity. While the downtown streets were laden with rainbow flags and colorful costumes, the overall mood in the atmosphere was filled with energy and happiness. Many unique contingents and organizations marched in this year’s parade including several nonprofits, corporate partners, small businesses, and popular celebrity figures.
This year, the FlatRate Moving crew was lucky enough to take part in the exciting action. During the parade hours, we arrived in pride style in our FlatRate moving truck, which was decorated in vibrant rainbow colors. As the parade route reached the Greenwich Village streets, members of our crew greeted parade goers with cold water bottles designed with pride theme labels. Not only did we enjoy the positive feedback from people as they thanked us for allowing them to stay hydrated throughout the hot day, but we loved being able to take part in this unified event.
While we are bummed that the celebration has come to an end for this year, we look forward to participating in the pride parade in 2018.
