The parade’s grand marshal was comic, actress (Orange is the New Black), and owner of Provincetown’s new “supper club” music venue ‘The Club’, Lea DeLaria. Also appearing the parade was a section of Gilbert Baker’s 1.25-mile-long rainbow flag brought to Provincetown from Key West. There were too many fairies, gnomes, tree spirits, forest rangers, cub scouts, satyrs, centaurs, butterflies, trolls, storybook characters and mushrooms to count, but here are a few of our favorites. We’ll be adding more — so come back.
