The Gayborhood's crosswalks were recently repainted in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.
The crosswalks appeared Thursday morning. Backers say they were planned for some time.
Philly Pride Presents senior adviser Chuck Volz says the crosswalks were completed at a cost far less than the initial $26,000 estimate.
Independence Visitor Center employee Albert Lee says the crosswalks show tourists that Philadelphia is a gay-friendly city.
The rainbow crosswalks will be dedicated at the Annual Reminders Block Party on July 5 honoring the 50th anniversary of the first wave of U.S. LGBT rights group demonstrations.
