I'm on the fence about bringing dd with me-- opinions? It was more for my convenience and enjoyment rather than anything else, but I am curious how "family friendly" you all think it is - and how interesting and fun a 3 y/o would find it. How long does the parade itself go, and what else is there to do (before/after the parade?!) ? I've seen the mainstage line-up, so I know that's at least part of it.
Also, any tips like the best place to watch the parade amid the massive crowd would be appreciated.
I just saw that Margaret Cho and Cyndi Lauper will be there, so I'm SO TOTALLY STOKED!!!

Anyhoo, thanks for the perspective.
Have a fabulous time, enjoy the energy and the day....If you want to come say "hi" to us in the garden, we'll be the 2 mamas with "bride to be" sashes on..... we are getting married the next day at City Hall

Just the fact that they show the parade on tv makes me :
And holy crap, happy engagement to the both of you!
This year, though, gas prices are a huge consideration of course. If I could survive the gas prices, the heat and the sun would kill me
I've only been to San Diego Pride, a long time ago, and I took my kids with me. They were 1, 3 and 5 and had a blast (they're now 17, 19 and 21).
My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.
If anyone happens to see this that will be travelling to SF from the north bay area on Saturday, PM me! It's probably a long-shot, but hey. Had to throw that one out there.
