Capital Pride Parade 2013 Brings Out Lynda Carter, A Giant Burrito, 100,000+ Attendees (PHOTOS)


WASHINGTON -- Wonder Woman draws a crowd!

D.C. was packed with people who turned up for this year's Capital Pride Parade -- which featured Lynda Carter as grand marshal, and marked the National Cathedral's first formal participation in the annual event.

The Washington Blade has details from the day:

More than 100,000 people lined the streets of Dupont and Logan Circles in Northwest Washington on Saturday for the annual D.C. Pride parade.

Mayor Vincent Gray and D.C. Council Chair Phil Mendelson (D-At-Large) are among those who joined grand marshals Lynda Carter and Brigadier Gen. Tammy S. Smith of the U.S. Army Reserve, who became the first openly gay and lesbian flag officer to serve in the military, and others as the parade wound its way from 22nd and P Streets, N.W., to Whitman-Walker Health at 14th and R Streets, N.W.

Those who came were enthusiastic -- about the parade itself, its super grand marshal and even about Chipotle's contribution of an enormous, rideable burrito:
