Holyoke Pride Fest celebrated at Veteran’s Park
HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) -Holyoke Pride Fest took place at Veteran’s Park Saturday afternoon.
The event kicked off at noon and wrapped up at 6:00. There were a variety of local art and craft vendors, food trucks, a walk-in COVID vaccine clinic, dance and exercise activities, and performances on stage by drag queens and queer performers.
“I think wherever there’s a Pride event it’s very inclusive and this is just a fraction of that community so I wouldn’t say it’s for the Pioneer Valley it’s for the world if you want to travel miles away to come here we welcome you,” said Juan Anderson-Burgos.
Organizers of Pride Fest would like to thank Canna Provisions for their sponsorship of $2,500, making them this year’s pride marshal.
They told Western Mass News community events like this could not happen without strong community support.
