Duluth Superior Pride Festival continued its 2014 celebrations with the Pride Parade in Superior Sunday.

Festival Co-chair Matt Reeves said with 30 floats and hundreds who came out to watch, this year's parade was the biggest so far.

"The support has been fantastic," Reeves said. "The straight community as well as the gay community have really come out this year and shown us a ton of support."

The Flame Nightclub, the Superior Fire Department and the Twin Cities Riders were just a few of the floats that traveled the six blocks down Tower Avenue. 

Lyle Loves-It was named Mr. Borderline Proud MI 2014 by the US Proud System in Madison, Wis. He'll also be performing in drag at the Pride Festival's Drag Show Festival benefiting people with HIV/AIDs. He said as Wisconsin continues the conversation over same-sex marriage, it's important to let your support be heard. 

"Loud and Proud," Lyle said. "I'll let anybody know my story, and I hope everybody can come to theirs too and be out, be free and be happy. It's about love. That's what it's about."
