The festivities started on Thursday, culminating in the parade on Saturday. Taking part were city dignitaries, delegations from other cities and even police officers in uniform, carrying placards which read #proudtobeyourfriend.
During the parade, a 39-year-old man taking part was assaulted by two gay-bashers. Meanwhile earlier in the week another man posted threatening messages on Twitter. When police visited him at his home, they found Nazi paraphernalia and a number of illegal knives. The man claimed he was protesting at the closure of city streets to allow the parade to take place.
