11AM-6:30PM Join us at the TriPride Parade and Festival in Kingsport!

The parade starts at 11AM and will go down E. Main to Clay St. The festival begins after the parade ends until 6:30PM.  It will showcase vendor booths, music stages, arts and crafts, children’s activities, food, and a sidewalk chalk art competition between Clinchfield St and W Market St. Please come out and support our LGBTQ community and show your support for Pride!

You can participate by:

·  Walking in the parade! The Parade starts at 11:00AM. Walking units must report in by 10:30AM. Please dress up! If you have a church t-shirt wear that, otherwise something with rainbows, tie dye, or just something fun and colorful! Make up, beads, supportive signs, you get the idea! The parade begins at the intersection of East Main Street and Island Street, in front of Kingsport Cycles. It will go down East Main Street and end at Clay Street. This is only 5 blocks, about 1/4 mile.

·  Bake cupcakes! Last year we had cupcakes at our booth in rainbow colors and they were very popular! We’d like to do that again and have even more to hand out.

·  Volunteer at our booth to answer questions, hand out cupcakes, and tell festival goers about our church!

Email TriPride@hvuuc.org to volunteer to bake cupcakes or help out at the booth. It would also be good to have an idea how many people will be walking in parade, but you can also just show up!
