The annual Pride in the Park hosted by People Acting for Change and Equality (PACE) took place on Sunday in Columbia Park after having to move the date due to rainy weather the day before.
The first Pride in the Park took place in 2014 and it was the first time in Shreveport that an all-ages festival was held for the LGBTQ+ community. This event supports local businesses, artists and entertainers by having them set up as vendors.
There were various kinds of booths set up to offer information, local vendors selling their products, food trucks, poetry readings, a set by DJ Flowboy, a drag story time and games, arts and crafts.
