Shreveport LA — 17 March 2017 — PACE is moving its annual pride picnic this year to avoid the summer heat!!  Everyone is invited to join us as we proudly celebrate the lives of Northwest Louisiana’s LGBT community at our annual family-friendly “Pride in the Park” picnic at Betty Virginia Park on Saturday, 8 April 2017, from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM.

Bring a picnic lunch or cash to purchase food from Jester’s Catering.  Beer will be available for purchase from The Korner Lounge (cash only).  Water will be provided.  Local nonprofits and businesses will have tables at the picnic, and there are five festive fun events planned:  Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Themed T-Shirt Contest, Easter Themed Best Basket Contest, Drag Race, and dress your pet in their best Pride or Easter finery for the Doggy Style Show.
