The largest celebration of diversity, pride and inclusion on the lower shore is returning and expanding in 2019. Following two successful years, and in order to accommodate increasing interest and growing attendance, the event has been moved to Winterplace Park. The expanded event, scheduled for June 1st, includes both a non-competitive 5k (with optional walk route) and a community fair. The purpose of the event is to show, and build, support for the LGBTQ community. All proceeds from this “fun” raiser will benefit the Lower Shore LGBTQ Coalition, Inc. and Salisbury PFLAG, Inc., two local non-profit organizations that provide education and support for LGBTQ people and their loved ones. On-site registration begins at 7am and the race/walk begins at 8am. The family-friendly community fair which begins at 9am is open to all and free to attend. The fair includes dignitaries, live performances, food trucks, vendors, corn hole, voter registration, a photo booth, button making, face painting, information tables, and more. Tickets for the fun run/walk can be purchased in advance online at salisburypflag.eventbee.com for $15 per ticket or $50 for a group of 4 and include a commemorative t-shirt for each participant. Tickets can also be purchased on-site the day of the event for $20.
