Security Enhanced For Gay Pride Parade

Columbus' annual gay pride parade starts on Saturday at Noon. The parade begins at the Statehouse and ends at the pride festival site at Goodale Park. Organizers of the parade and festival estimate more than 250 thousand people will attend. Stonewall Columbus director Karla Rothan says in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, additional Columbus police officers and firefighters will be on hand to provide security.
