The Vancouver Pride Society’s annual day of red is back as the gays take over Playland at the PNE on Saturday, July 16th.
This annual funfest at Vancouver’s summer carnival takes its cue from its larger Disney cousins south of the border with a day of carnival games, rollercoasters and pink candy floss. Those attending are encouraged to show their pride by wearing a red shirt.
Along with the opportunity to ride the coaster with a drag queen, the day includes a special Pride entertainment area with live entertainment and a private beer garden.
The afternoon gets underway with tunes from DJs Riot, Jason Van and Drew. The Queentastic Legends show takes to the stage at 5:30pm hosted by Symone with performances by Joan-E, Conni Smudge, Isolde N Barron, Kiki Lawhore, Hope Diamond, Foxy-De-Rossi, Leroy and The Lovebots, Danni L, Diamond Minx, Black Parade Kings and The Bobbers in Drag.
