Sandra Bernhard and singer Martha Wash headlined Utah's gay pride parade and festival in Salt Lake City.

Comedienne-actress Bernhard performed Saturday night at the festival's Washington Square stage, while dance diva Wash wowed the crowd on Sunday.

Thousands of revelers cheered on Sunday as nearly 90 floats wound their way around Salt Lake City's downtown streets in what's become Utah's second-largest parade. Afterward, the festivities moved to Washington Square, where vendors tended booths and various artists performed on three stages, including singer Angie Evans, the DC Cowboys, a group of “dancing, shirtless cowboys” and a dancing troupe that performs traditional Aztec dances.

Organizers said they believed the weekend-long festival would top last year's record 20,000 attendees.

“Yesterday was tremendous,” Michael Westley, a spokesman for Utah Pride Center, the group behind the city's gay pride festival, told the Salt Lake Tribune on Sunday. “It exceeded our expectations by 100 percent.”

Organizers weaved this year's festival theme “Our History, Our Future” into the celebration by adding a civil rights history exhibit and three hours of children's programming. Both events were new this year.
