DULUTH, Minn. -

It’s the 30th anniversary for Pride in the Twin Ports, and Thousands turned out to Bayfront Park to celebrate.

Organizers say the event first started as a small gathering of around 15 people, that grew in to the big event that it is today

It’s a 4 day celebration filled with dancing, live music, and food. Events take place in different venues like Clyde Iron works, Bayfront Park, and the Flame.

And it isn’t just LGBTQIA people at the events. Family members and allies also turned out to celebrate love and equality.

"We have been real happy over the last 10 years to see a transition to a more family friendly and inclusive of everybody kind of event, because in the end it’s all about community," said Gary Lundstrom, a festival attendee.

The Annual Parade will be held on Sunday on Tower Avenue in Superior.
