Happy Pride Month! PACE is recognizing LGBT Pride on June 18th at Betty Virginia Park from 10 AM to 2 PM.
Start your morning off with yoga led by James Osborne at 10:00 am in the park. Event begins after yoga at 11:00 am, with hamburgers, hotdogs, and fixins’ being served by Marilynn’s Place. PACE will be providing refreshments, while the Korner lounge will be selling beer and wine (CASH ONLY). Games will be set up in the park, with raffle prizes occurring throughout the event. Raffle prizes will be provided by Krewe of Atlas, Philadelphia Center, and Louisiana Trans Advocates. PACE will have three large “swag bag” raffle prizes (valued over $125 each), available exclusively for existing PACE members. If you’re not currently a member of PACE, you can sign up at the event. The Pride t-shirt contest will happen again this year, with an award for the best pride themed t-shirt. New this year is the doggy style show, a dog show competition for the animal displaying the most Pride! Also, Levette Fuller from The Krewe of Highland will be hosting a story time for children at 12:00.
After Pride in the Park is over, Mylestone Bar is offering drink specials to Pride attendees, with $2 domestic beers and $2 well drinks all night long. The Korner Lounge will be hosting Turnabout, their annual fundraiser in celebration of LGBT Pride month. Come out and watch your favorite bartenders from the Korner put on a great drag show, while Pride attendees will get 50% off Fireball. Afterward, head to Central Station, where Pride attendees will have no cover charge.
