We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center‘s annual Pride March and Festival in New Paltz!
If you’re familiar with Main St. in New Paltz, you know why we wore our shoes instead of our skates in the parade! Although it may be fun to fly down that steep hill on 8 wheels, it didn’t seem wise to try it out with such a big crowd!
The parade ended at the festival in Hasbrouck park where there were vendors, community groups, and a large entertainment tent. We met lots of great people and had fantastic time checking everything out.
We had such a fabulous day… we’re already looking forward to doing it again next year!
If you missed us at Pride or just can’t wait to chat with us again, we will be at the Retro Rally Car & Motorcycle Show at Cornell Street Studios in Kingston on Saturday, June 8th from 1-6! There will be an art show and live music, too. So come on by and be sure to say hello!
