West Side Merry Makers’ Pride in the Park

From Jersey City Times:

 

Head over to Lincoln Park this Saturday for the first-ever Pride in the Park, organized by the West Side Merry Makers (with the support of Jersey City LGBT+ Pride Festival and Hudson Pride Center)! This event is family-friendly, and will feature a Drag Story Hour with Harmonica Sunbeam, Free Mom Hugs, a doggie “Paws of Pride” contest, food trucks, and more!

 

The event was well attended and enjoyed by all ages. The family oriented events made this a welcome environment for younger LGBTQ+ people attending with their parents. It was a great day and we truly pulled off an incredible, historic event. The Pride flag was raised for the first time as well.
