This year's theme is "One Heart, One World, One Pride". As tradition, Team Chicago will have an entry in this year's parade.

Some of the groups marching with Team Chicago include: Chicago Front Runners, Chicago Gold Stars Soccer Team, Windy City Cycling Association, individuals competing in aquatics, basketball, bowling, cycling, dance sport, marathon, physique, road races, soccer, tennis, track & field, triathlon, volleyball, choral & visual arts will also be joining us.
Participants heading to Cologne can carry Red and White Balloons (official 2010 Games Cologne Colors) and Gay Games signs even if they have a separate float entry for the parade. We also encourage previous medal winners to bring their medals and march the route with us.
Volunteers and marchers are asked to be in the staging area between 10 AM on Sunday, June 27th. Our entry staging # is 69 located around Halsted and Wellington.
