The 2013 Twin Cities Pride Festival got underway in Loring Park in Minneapolis on Saturday, featuring food, music and a wedding showcase where gay couples can plan wedding celebrations for when the new Minnesota law permitting same-sex marriage takes effect in August.

The festival, which began in 1972 and has grown to attract about 400,000 people, continues Sunday with the annual parade at 11 a.m.
