Hey everyone, do you want to have loads of fun and show your pride & support for all Nanaimo citizens?
Well here’s your chance: The *LGBTQ community welcomes your participation in the first annual “Pride Parade” to be held in Nanaimo on June 12th at noon.
The BC NDP are going to be walking in the parade along with our MLA, Leonard Krog and a possibility that (time willing) John Horgan, BC NDP leader will march with us as well.
There is great participation from the community with many colourful & decorated floats, bands and participants from local businesses & organizations all dressed up in “Rainbow” colors in a show of support for the LGBTQ community. It will be fun for everyone in the neighbourhood, young & old alike.
There will be orange NDP tee shirts or hats for anyone who walks in the parade with us. Everyone gets balloons, streamers, flowers and other colorful & fun stuff to shake and rattle around for the fun of it.
So far we’re queued up to march behind BC Ferries so we can make sure they keep to the route & stay on time!!
We meet at Commercial Street & Museum Way at 11am on June 12th. The parade starts promptly at Noon and will wind down to Maffeo Sutton Park. NDP’s parade entry is #18 in line.
Thank you and hope to see you at the parade!
