New Hope Celebrates announced it will not have the traditional Pride Parade and Pride Fair in May due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and safety concerns surrounding the wellness of community members, visitors, partners and volunteers.
Instead, NHC is planning numerous events that can be experienced safely throughout May and June. The NHC board is working on creating a variety of events to support the local community and encourage people to come “out” and celebrate who they are.
Events include the Annual Best Cocktail Contest, which is extended to three weeks to allow more time for participants to safely enjoy their cocktails and vote; the annual flag unfurling on May 8; several drag shows; a book club event; mental health events; a Pride bike ride; a Pride drive-in movie; and more.
