This makes two years in a row that Circle City IN Pride has been your pick for best local festival. The week-plus-long fest includes concerts, dances, pet walks and other fun. But the big event remains Saturday's parade and festival, which starts at Mass Ave and College and debouches onto the American Legion Mall, where the afternoon crosses into evening to the sound of 26 performers and DJs. And the numbers were impressive this year: 85,000 festival attendees, 35,000 parade watchers, 600 dogs and 5 cats at Pet Pride and 350 bladers at Pride Skate.
