DULUTH - The 27th Pride in the Twin Ports on Saturday, brought out thousands of people and hundreds of vendors.
With performances by bands, the Minnesota Ballet and an aerialist, organizers said, this year is extra special.
“This year, because of the marriage amendment, is a really, really big deal and another thing to recognize is on the far side of the park, there is a marriage tent, where we will be recognizing the people that got married this year,” Alex Campanini, an organizer, said. “Today is a celebration, it’s also a fight for everyone else, but this country is one step closer to being equal and I think that’s what Pride’s about.”
Events continue Sunday, with a parade in Superior, a train ride and the fruit float on the Vista Fleet, and a drag show.
