Chicago's pride boat parade, which was set to take place Saturday, has been rescheduled for Aug. 15.

Pride Flotilla was canceled Saturday due to other activities on the lake.

Rainbow Races asked owners to deck out their boats with as many flags and rainbow items as possible, while following proper social distancing and health guidelines.

Boats are set to leave Belmont Harbor and head south along the lakefront, ending at 31st Harbor to simply stop and head back.

"Please boat responsibly, we are here for fun, so lets not make a mess! Follow the course and speed set by the lead boat, leave enough room between vessels," Rainbow Races' website said.

While the boating event is free, Rainbow Races encouraged boaters to donate at least $20 to keep the organization running amid the coronavirus.
