yacht party washington dc

Capital Pride Parade returns to DC on Saturday with a new route: Here's what to know if you're going

yacht party washington dc

LightReel Film Festival underway through Saturday

Local basketball fans have a lot to be excited about as the Indiana Fever and Caitlin Clark come to town Friday.

The Mystics moved the game to Capital One Arena to accommodate the larger crowd. It quickly sold out, but official resale tickets were going for $60-$70 on Ticketmaster as of Friday morning.

Pride highlights

Free pick Capital Pride Parade Sat. Details

The number one thing to know about this year’s pride parade: It’s on a new route in preparation for World Pride 2025. And it won’t go through Dupont Circle.

🏁 The parade will kick off from 14th and T streets NW at 3 p.m.

🛑 It will end on Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 10th and 9th Streets after about four hours. From there, you can easily access the Flashback Tea Dance official after party at Constitution Avenue and 6th Street.

Arrive early and you’ll be able to find good spots throughout the route. The west side of Franklin Park and wide intersections like 14th and Rhode Island Avenue NW are good bets.

Expect restaurants and bars near the route to be packed. But you can pay for a prime view, including $25 for bleachers on Freedom Plaza, or a $5-$10 suggested donation for a special area on Thomas Circle. ADA-accessible viewing is also available.

Go here for more specials, events and updates!

Free pick 17th Street Block Party Sat., noon to 10 p.m. Details

Dupont’s 17th Street is a center of culture for the LGBTQIA+ community in D.C. Though the pride parade is skipping Dupont this year, that didn’t stop the neighborhood from planning a poppin’ block party.

Expect DJs, entertainment and adult beverages from local businesses. If you're bringing children, head to Stead Park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for kid’s activities, games and drag story hour.

“The one thing we got from last year from a lot of people was that, ‘This is how I want to celebrate Pride,” Eli Downs from JR’s Bar said.

Free pick Capital Pride Festival and Concert Sun., 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., 3rd & Pennsylvania Ave. Details

Ana Max, Billy Porter, Exposé, Sapphira Cristál and special guest KeKe Palmer will appear on the Capitol Stage at 3rd and Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

Festivalgoers can also explore two other stages, beverage gardens and exhibitor booths (come say hi to NBC4 and Telemundo 44!).

The concert goes until 8 p.m., then close out the night with a sunset dance party.

Tinner Hill Music Festival

June’s black music month, and one of the best ways to celebrate is the 30th Annual Tinner Hill Music Festival. All day Saturday, you'll find food, music and a chance to relax at Cherry Hill Park. Tickets range from $10 to $55, but entry for kids 11 and under is free.

Concerts this weekend

Okkervil River/The Antlers, 7 p.m. Saturday, Union Stage, $30

Billed as “an intimate evening” with the bands “playing old songs, new songs and each other’s songs.” Over a quarter century, singer-songwriter Will Sheff’s Okkervil River has delivered acclaimed folk rock, pop rock and alt rock colored sitting just outside Americana, and Sheff’s got a terrific gift for storytelling in his songs. Peter Silberman’s Antlers began with delicate, intimate and soaring songs – a sort of bedroom pop symphony – but has expanded its palate over the past decade-and-a-half. Details.

English Teacher, 6:30 p.m. Sunday, The Atlantis, $20

The UK indie rock band sounds familiar in pieces but unique as a whole, blending post-punk, folk and electronica to name a few influences. Details.

Nationalist parties, far-left on the rise ahead of Sunday’s federal elections in Belgium

The Associated Press

BRUSSELS (AP) — The last time federal elections were held in Belgium in 2019, it took nearly 18 months before a new prime minister could be sworn in to lead a seven-party coalition government.

The wait was even longer after the 2010 vote when the country needed 541 days to form a government, still a world record.

Belgian voters return to the national polls on Sunday, in conjunction with the European Union vote, amid a rise of both the far-right and the far-left in the country. The vote could mean complex negotiations ahead in a country of 11.5 million people who are divided by language and deep regional identities.

Belgium is split along linguistic lines, with francophone Wallonia in the south and Dutch-speaking Flanders in the north, and governments are invariably formed by coalitions made of parties from both regions.

The latest opinion polls suggest that a new headache is on the horizon.

Two Flemish nationalist parties are poised to gather the largest shares of votes in Flanders, with the far-right Vlaams Belang, which backs independence for Flanders, is expected to win more than 25% of the vote. Just behind, the right-wing nationalist New Flemish Alliance (N-VA) could get around 20% of the vote.

In French-speaking Wallonia, the Socialist Party is projected to garner as much as a quarter of the ballots ahead of liberals and the far-left Belgium’s Workers Party. Poorer Wallonia — whose decline started in the 1960’s while Flanders’ economy went up — traditionally leans in favor of national unity because the region would likely find it difficult to survive economically on its own.

If the lokatest projections are confirmed, the making of a government will be extremely difficult, especially if the Flemish nationalists join forces with the extreme-right at regional level, a move that would likely exclude them from coalition talks with moderate parties.

Belgian voters on Sunday not only elect a new federal parliament but also regional parliaments and members of the European Parliament.

Sophie Wilmes, a former pro-business liberal caretaker prime minister, has already warned that she won’t get involved in possible coalition talks with either the far-right or the far-left. She also predicted “enormous problems” if an alliance between the N-VA and the Vlaams Belang takes shape something N-VA leader Bart De Wever has so far ruled out.

“It would make the formation of a federal government almost impossible,” she was quoted in Belgian media. “Nobody wants to form a coalition with a party that allies itself with Vlaams Belang.”

The surge of the anti-immigrant and separatist Vlaams Belang is reflecting a trend that has seen populist and far-right parties making gains across the EU in recent years. In Belgium, Vlaams Belang has however so far been blocked from entering governments as other Flemish parties vowed to exclude it from power.

According to Laura Jacobs, a political scientist at the University of Antwerp, one of the main assets of Vlaams Belang is that it did not take part in the current government led by the liberal Alexander De Croo.

“We are seeing a rise in discontent among voters, a lot of negative emotion, and the party is managing to channel this anger and embody a solution to the mistrust of the political class in Flanders,” she said in an article for the The Research and Studies Centre, at Robert Schuman Foundation.

“Polls show that few voters feel represented by the political class in office, and Vlaams Belang plays on this feeling to a great extent,” she said.

It’s also unclear whether the Socialists and the radical left could find a common ground and unite with the Greens after the elections notably because of the Workers Party’s ambiguous views on the Western support to Ukraine and NATO.

Around 80 migrants rescued in English Channel after making risky crossing from France in small boat

Around 80 migrants have been rescued at sea by British authorities after a small boat got into difficulty while crossing the English Channel from France

LONDON — Around 80 migrants were rescued at sea by British authorities on Thursday after a small boat got into difficulty while crossing the English Channel from France.

The coastguard confirmed that it scrambled two helicopters after the incident while the Royal National Lifeboat Institution dispatched lifeboats.

“The search has now concluded with all people accounted for and back on land,” a spokesperson for the coastguard said.

The issue of how to stop migrants making the dangerous crossing across the Channel is one of the main issues during Britain’s general election campaign.

Though the Conservative government has talked tough on limiting the migrants, the numbers making the crossing are rising.

The Home Office said 34 people made the journey in one boat on Wednesday, taking the provisional total number of crossings for the year so far to 10,779. This is up 42% on the number recorded this time last year and 8% higher than at the same point in 2022.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak pledged to “stop the boats” when he took the top job in Oct. 2022 and is promoting his contentious deal to send people who arrive in small boats on a one-way trip to Rwanda . Sunak says the Rwanda plan will act as a deterrent and has indicated the deportation flights would begin in July — after the election on July 4.

Keir Starmer, leader of the main opposition Labour Party, has said he will scrap the scheme, describing it as a gimmick, if he becomes prime minister. Opinion polls show Labour way ahead of the Conservatives at the moment, with four weeks to go to polling day.
