We’re inviting you to march with us!
HOPES will have a float in the Pride parade and we’re inviting our friends and supporters to join us. Meet the HOPES staff at 9 am at the Starbucks at 400 W 5th St., and we will walk together to the HOPES float which is near the parade starting location at Fourth and Virginia Streets. The parade starts at 10 am. Parade participants will walk down to Virginia Street and will end up at Wingfield Park, so plan accordingly. The parade route will be about 1 mile long.
Can’t wait to show your Pride?
HOPES will also host a Pride Prep Party at the HOPES clinic on Thursday, July 25 starting at 4:30 pm in the HOPES parking lot. We will be making Pride signs and decorating the HOPES float. Come join us to start the Pride celebration early!
Drop by the HOPES booth during the festival!
If you can’t make it to the parade, make sure you stop by the HOPES booth on Pride day. We’ll have lots of fun, rainbow HOPES swag to give away. The Change Point van will also be at Pride offering free, fast, and confidential HIV testing.
