For the first time in its history, the Utah Pride Festival has sold out of vendor space, with 142 booths and 17 food stands.
Sunday’s parade also will be bigger than ever with 91 entries, up from 75 last year. The pride parade is thought to be Utah’s second largest, rivaling the hugely popular Days of ‘47 parade, which had 126 entries last year.
Logan Brueck, director of the pride parade, described the event, in a statement, as a "fabulous moving block party with a hint of a peaceful demonstration of individuality."
He added, "There is also something incredibly powerful about a procession of like-minded individuals down our city’s streets saying, ‘We love who we are.’"
The festival is Friday through Sunday in downtown Salt Lake City. For a detailed schedule or to volunteer, go to www.utahpridefestival.org.
