The parade route took participants from the David L. Lawrence Convention Center down 10th Street toward the Westin Convention Center Hotel before looping back around the opposite side of 10th Street to reenter the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Kristin Wenger, with VisitPITTSBURGH, says the convention chooses a different charity within Allegheny County to raise money for each year. This year, they're raising money for South Hills Pet Rescue.
