Jeffersonville closes out Pride Month with parade, festival
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- June is pride month and the city of Jeffersonville ended it with their own celebration Saturday.
Waving flags and cheering, hundreds of people took part in the 3rd annual Jeffersonville Pride.
The parade headed down Spring Street and ended with a festival at Warder Park.
There was live music, vendors, and food and drink trucks to keep everyone cool.
People could even create their own rainbow tie-dye shirts.
Their mission was to empower those in the LGBT community by making a positive impact.
It takes volunteers several months to put it all together for the festival, that has been getting bigger every year.
"This line goes all the way down Riverside Drive here in Jeffersonville," Jeffersonville Pride organizer Evan Stoner said. "People are so excited. They are ready to see love prevail and love win, and love always wins."
More than 60 local businesses and organizations were represented during the parade and festival.
