The theme of this year's celebration is "Love Will Keep Us Together!" and in line with that theme, Worcester Pride is asking all loving couples to march at the front of the parade as this year's official Grand Marshalls.
Worcester Pride has also announced that Worcester's City Manager Ed Augustus will be the 2015 Honorary Grand Marshall.
In a released statement, Worcester Pride said, "We are pleased to acknowledge to work that the city manager has done in the short time he has been here, not the lease of which, he has helped the city move forward and get a 100% rating from the Human Rights Campaign's Livable City Index."
