The parade included music and more than 150 floats with marchers and attendees wearing rainbow-colored clothing.
Some protesters carrying signs with red Xs over gay-rights symbols marched alongside the parade in protest. Some shouted Biblical passages regarding the definition of marriage.
The parade was part of a three-day Columbus pride festival celebrating LGBT pride and support.
