(VIDEO) WorldPride festival, parade in downtown Toronto

Huge crowds flooded downtown Toronto last weekend for the 2014 WorldPride festival and parade.

"Many watching the parade go by clutched umbrellas to ward off the hot sun and also block water gun squirts from the more than 12,000 marchers who organizers say registered for the event," reports the Canadian Press's Will Campbell. "They walked more than a dozen city blocks to the cheers of spectators."
