Pride on parade in downtown Mountain View

Annual Disability Pride parade celebrates passage of Americans with Disabilities Act

Donna Yeager, who hosts the show "On the Move" that's produced at KMVT, gets ready for the Disability Pride parade in downtown Mountain View on Saturday, July 19. "They told me I'd never drive. I told them, 'Watch me!'" said Yeager, who drives a custom van and has gone surfing and skiing.

Chanting, "We're here, we're loud, we're disabled and proud," participants made their way down Castro Street in the annual celebration of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The festival included a resource fair for aging, veterans and disabilities, as well as activities, games and live performances.
