Sioux Falls Has Got PRIDE
June is Pride month and in celebration, Sioux Falls has a ton of events going on this week all leading up to the big festival at Terrace Park.
The festivities kicked off last Friday with a ribbon cutting, complete with a rainbow ribbon and rainbow cupcakes.
According to SiouxFallsPride.org, "...Sioux Falls Pride had humble beginnings with the first festival welcoming around 1,000 patrons. Over the last several years the festival has grown to welcome nearly 10,000 visitors from all over the region. In addition to growth in attendance, Sioux Falls Pride has expanded festival offerings by growing family-friendly events, adding in Pride Week and diversifying marketing and community engagement efforts. In the last year, multiple local businesses have even started their own Sioux Falls Pride events."
The list of events has something for everybody. From family friendly events, to arcade games, to a bar crawl, and of course, drag shows!
