ANNAPOLIS ROYAL, NS - The province’s smallest town will be celebrating Pride Day in a big way July 21 with a ton of events including opening ceremonies, a new rainbow crosswalk dedication, celebrations at the farm market, and a parade of celebrants and cyclists through town.

Mayor Bill MacDonald said events start at 9 a.m. with an opening ceremony at the amphitheatre followed by a parade of Pride celebrants, supporters, and ‘Valley Pride Ride’ cyclists down St. George Street to King’s Theatre plaza for dedication of the Rainbow Crosswalk.

That’s followed by the opening of ‘Pride Day at the Farmers & Traders Market’ with Town Crier Peter Davies leading the celebrants and cyclists through the market. Cyclists will meet up with police who will escort them to the head of the Harvest Moon Trail by the old railway Station for the start of the Valley Pride Ride from Annapolis Royal to Wolfville.

Pride Day events include rainbow face painting, free rainbow stickers and ribbon bracelets at the amphitheatre, the market and the Women’s Place.
