Expect a trail of dancing, music and bright colours in Regina's downtown today when the Queen City Pride parade kicks off at noon. 

It's expected to be the biggest pride parade in the city's history with 50 floats participating. 

It will also limit traffic in the city's downtown for a couple of hours as it makes it way through the route. 

Floats and participants will begin to line up on 13th Avenue and Scarth Street around 10:30 a.m. CST. The parade will then march from Scarth Street, up Victoria Avenue, down Broad Street to College Avenue and down Albert back to Victoria Park. 

Spectators can watch from any area along the parade route.

The parade is expected to take an hour to complete with most traffic back to normal by around 1 p.m., Regina police said.
