With the growing crowds, organizers are making a few security changes.

You'll want to approach the north or south sides of Civic Center Park.

They'll be checking all bags coming in, and no coolers are allowed, organizers say.

The GLBT Community Center of Colorado says it’s the third largest pride event in the country.
