LANSING – The events for Michigan Pride are a go. As of Monday, the permits from the City of Lansing have been issued. The event continues to look for more volunteers. Those interested in volunteering to assist in set-up, tear-down, security, and the gate can contact Michigan Pride planning committee member Candice Risner at [email protected] or via phone at (517) 62-1717.
“We’re willing to work with whatever time you have to donate,” Risner told BTL. “If you want to work a couple of hours, then go enjoy the rest of Pride, that’s OK with us. We can never have too many volunteers.”
The event will begin with a noon march from the Lou Adado Riverfront Park on Grand Avenue, up to Allegan Street, to the Capitol for a 1 p.m. rally. The rally is being hosted by Michigan Equality, and following the rally the Rev. Kent Lederer from Unity of Greater Lansing will officiate a commitment ceremony on the steps of the capitol. Following the rally, the pride festival will happen in the Lou Adado Riverfront Park and will feature entertainers, vendors and a beer tent.
On Friday night, June 29th, the Michigan Pride committee will host a variety show at the Cadillac Club on Washington Avenue.
