We are getting closer to the big event! The Virtual Spooky River City Pride event is coming up on October 23rd and we can't wait!

So if you don't know, the pride event planned for later this month was changed to a virtual event because of the continuing pandemic and additional cases of the Delta variant. It is the hope of the organizers at River City Pride that this decision will help protect the most vulnerable members of the LGBTQIA+ in our community.

Now, just because the event is going virtual does not mean that our friends at River City Pride don't still have a ton of fun up their sleeves. On the contrary, the virtual event which takes place on October 23rd from 3 pm - 7 pm, will include live music, drag performances, celebrity guests and a whole lot more!
