About 15,000 people are expected to attend the Honolulu Pride Festival that’s going on until 8 p.m. Saturday at the Diamond Head Greens, located between the Waikiki Shell and Kapiolani Park.

Festivities began soon after the Honolulu Pride Parade started making its way there from Magic Island and through Waikiki earlier in the morning.

The parade and festival are organized by the Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation.

Former governor Neil Abercrombie served as one of the grand marshals of the parade.

This year’s festival is featuring continuous entertainment like live music, acrobats, DJs, burlesque and more.
