25th Annual Pride Picnic on August 26

from NW PA Pride Allaince

This event is free and open to the public, so bring your buns down to the beach and see what's cooking! NW PA Pride Alliance would like to invite you to join us for the 25th Annual Erie Pride Picnic on Saturday, August 26th at the Rotary Pavilion at Presque Isle (near Beach 7) from 1 to 6 PM. Please note that this year's picnic is in August rather than in June.

Hot dogs, ox roast, soft drinks, water and table settings are provided. Please bring a side dish, dessert, or salad to share. Food will be served from 2 to 4 PM. Note that state law does not permit alcohol in the park and we respectfully ask that you abide by rules the good folks at Presque Isle State Park have set for everyone's safety.

Be sure to check in at the registration table when you arrive. We will be taking the annual Family Portrait around 4:30 PM, and there will also be roving photographers. If you prefer to not be included in photos, put a red dot on your name badge.

If your group or organization would like to set up an info table, please let us know by July 31st. There is no charge for an info table, but vending at the park is not permitted. If you can bring your own table, that is very much appreciated, but not required.

As always, there will be a collection taken for Second Harvest Food Bank of NW PA (non-perishables, Please and Thank You).

The picnic area and Beach 7 area are accessible.

For more information or if you have questions you are welcome to call (814) 314-9075 or email president@nwpapride.org
