Lord Stanley Trophy has own float in Chicago Pride Parade (VIDEO)

Just days after the historic Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage, approximately one million people flooded the streets of Chicago in celebration of the annual Pride Parade. And one of the most popular attractions was adorned in silver — namely Lord Stanley's Cup.

The Cup, along with mascot Tommy Hawk and members of the ice crew, was featured on a float sponsored by WGN Radio and looked fine and dandy after the previous night out at a Jimmy Buffet concert.

Back when the Blackhawks won the Cup in 2010, the Cup rode in the parade at the request of the Chicago Gay Hockey Association. Five years and two more Stanley Cups later, the trophy was back.
