How do I get there?
Parking is available at all open downtown garages and lots, with sponsored parking at the 1100 Smith Garage available for $10 (limited). Though if you want to fully partake in the festivities (and by fully, we mean with booze), you’ll want to use a ride-share. Lyft will be offering a 50% ride discount for rides, up to $3, to and from the Houston Pride Festival and Parade. Or, you can try the METRORail: all three lines (Red, Green, and Purple) make stops at Central Stations just a short walk to the Festival and Parade route.
Bonus: In celebration of Houston Pride, Lyft is also rolling out a multi-stop experiential pop-up, where locals learn about the history of Pride and show their support for the movement. On Saturday, the pop-up can be found at the Houston Pride Festival, near the corner of Bagby and Walker, from noon to 6pm. When riders use promo code PRIDE2019IAH traveling to or from the Lyft pop-up events, Lyft will donate $1 to The Montrose Center, a community group that has provided resources and support to Houston’s LGBTQ+ community since 1978.
