LUDINGTON – While Michigan’s larger cities traditionally celebrate Pride during June, there is a place in Michigan that has traditionally celebrated Pride in July. That place is Ludington, which has been celebrating Pride for seven years.
The 7th Annual West Shore Pride Picnic and Celebration will be held Saturday, July 16, from 1-5 p.m. at Memorial Tree Park, 1599 North Washington Avenue in Ludington.
A new addition to this year’s picnic and celebration will be live entertainment. “The fundamentalists,” a gay band from Detroit, will be performing at West Shore Pride this year. The band has performed at other Pride celebrations throughout Michigan, including Grand Rapids.
Organizers request that those attending bring a dish to pass, beverage and table service. Hot dogs, buns and condiments will be provided by the West Shore Pride Committee while supplies last. A 50/50 drawing to help raise funds for the West Shore Pride Committee will also be offered.
