The centerpiece of any worthy Pride celebration is the parade, and this year’s Spokane version offers serious costume potential thanks to a theme of “May Pride Be With You.” The 26th Pride celebration in the Lilac City promises some excellent Star Wars regalia and a day full of LGBTQA-friendly fun in Riverfront Park after the noon parade comes to a close. The Rainbow Festival kicks off right after the march through downtown and runs into the evening, and includes entertainment until 10 pm — among the options are an all-ages dance party, various booths, a bar area and fireworks. Consider this a perfect opportunity to join your fellow Spokanites in a celebration of tolerance, inclusiveness and civil rights.
