MUSKOKA PRIDE FESTIVAL KICKS OFF FRIDAY IN HUNTSVILLE
HUNTSVILLE, ONTARIO – July 17th, 2015– The 2015 Muskoka Pride Festival kicks off this Friday in Huntsville with a free BBQ downtown.
This is the 3rd year that Muskoka Pride festivities have started in Huntsville. “It’s a great start to a fun-filled week” says Shawn Forth, a board member with Muskoka Pride. “This is the kind of community-based and family-friendly event that Muskoka Pride is known for.”
The kick-off BBQ is open to everyone and takes place at River Mill Park starting at 4pm. People can expect some music playing, games for families, a chance to get LGBTQ resources, and of course the free hot dogs. The BBQ runs until 6:30, and people can continue the festivities with the annual Huntsville Midnight Madness sale.
“We are pleased to carry on the tradition that started two years ago during the 2013 Muskoka Pride Week,” says Heather Hay, Muskoka Pride chairperson. “What is more Muskoka than an outdoor BBQ in the park with friends and family?”
The Muskoka Pride Festival runs for ten days, with activities and events all across Muskoka, and concludes with the 7th annual Muskoka Pride Picnic at Annie Williams Park in Bracebridge on Sunday July 26th from noon to 4pm.
