Michigan City holding second Pride this weekend.


MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — Michigan City’s PFLAG group will be hosting the city’s second Pride celebration this coming weekend.

The Times of Northwest Indiana reported that Michigan City Pride Fest will be at Guy Foreman Amphitheater at 115 Lake Shore Drive in Michigan City from 1 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 29. Michigan City is about 60 miles from Chicago on the Lake Michigan shoreline.

The newspaper said the family-friend event will feature live music, a Zumba class and food and drink from Smokey G’s BBQ, Blue Chip, Lulu’s Licks, Burn ‘Em Brewing, and other vendors. A drag show finishes off the festivities.

“Keeping congruent with PFLAG’s mission of education and advocacy many non-profit vendors will be on site offering insight and educational materials on topics such as health screenings, mental health awareness and suicide prevention,” Michigan City PFLAG said in a press release received by the Times. “MCHS LGBTQ Club and Krueger Diversity Club will be providing children’s games and entertainment. PFLAG will also be selling Michigan City Pride-branded merchandise to help fund next year’s Pride Fest.”
