Pride parades are generally colorful, sweaty, raucous celebrations of LGBT rights—and this weekend’s parades held in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, and Seattle were even more so, given the Supreme Court’s legalization of same-sex marriage on June 26.

Recent pride weekends have also been marked by the same kind of electricity: in 2011, the parade came shortly after New York legalized same-sex marriage, and in 2013, it followed the Supreme Court’s announcement that same-sex couples would receive federal benefits.

“Odd-numbered years we do well,” said James Fallarino, a parade spokesperson in an interview with the New York Times.
