Today kicks of a weekend full of fun and celebration in West Hollywood for the 2012 L.A. Pride festival. One of the biggest draws is Sunday's big parade on Santa Monica Boulevard, which is set to start at 11 a.m.

Of course, with an event of this magnitude on the streets of WeHo, that means street closures and parking changes anyone headed in or out of the area will need to consider, whether they're in a car or on public transit.
