Hundreds of thousands of spectators lined Amsterdam's historic canals Saturday to celebrate Canal Parade.

The boats representing rights groups, bars, clothing brands and even the Dutch military made their way slowly through the waterways in a resumption of the hugely popular LGBTQ Pride event after two years canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spectators packed canals and bridges to watch the 25th version of the parade that was the the highlight of a nine-day pride event in the Dutch capital.
