Boise Pride Festival Officially Returns This September
There a lot of good news spreading around social media this week. The White House announced we could have the entire country fully vaccinated by the end of May, it's going to be close to 70 degrees this weekend and the Pride Festival is a go.
It's important to keep an eye on that because Pride is a massive festival in Boise. Could we be turning the corner heading in a safer and more positive direction?
I am just like everyone else who watches news alerts and listens to everyone predict what is true and that fake stuff. You heard a lot during the election, "Don't listen to what they say, but what they do." That's true. The Pride Festival is announcing its go for 2021 with events to follow. The date will move to September 10-12 giving Idahoans a very safe event (crossing fingers).
This is a three-day event that could continue to look somewhat different in clubs, but it's happening. I'm not even sure that we'll have a COVID-19 protocol that cancels any events by the time we see September.
The Mayor of Boise just announced approvals for gatherings of 50 or more this week. It's just the beginning of March with a lot of growth over the next few months if things go right. This is also a big win for the LGBTQ community who just celebrated the opening of "Somewhere". That's where the "Ranch Club" in Garden City was located.
You can volunteer, become a sponsor or small business partner below. I'm sure we'll more including celebrity acts and more on the Pride Parade.
