Pride Month: Virtual Shoebox Float Parade & Flag Lowering

Pride is never cancelled; nor is the Pride Parade! Come join the celebration with Berkeley Lab shoebox floats.

What is a Shoebox float parade?

The origins are unclear, but shoebox parades appear to have started as elementary school projects. With COVID-19 restrictions virtual Pride parade variations with shoebox floats are emerging at universities like UCLA, and among industry diversity approaches.
