Shalom Cares Family Interactive Area
Don’t leave the family at home. Bring the kids. Bring the dog. Bring your friends. Heck, bring your dog's friends! Saturday is packed full of kid- and parent-friendly activities - everything from kid parades to dogs-in-drag contests. Spend some time at the family interactive area and visit fun and interactive booths, get your faces painted, slurp down some snow cones, enjoy GLBT friendly cartoons and more!
Saturday is Family Field Day at PrideFest
Do you enjoy some friendly competition and a chance for family glory? Compete for prizes and show off your skills with hula-hoops, sack races, relay races, water balloons and more. Ever been to Kiddie Karaoke? Don’t you think you should check it out? We think so too. And we are very excited to announce that the Morning Star Miniatures petting zoo and the Rapture Education Foundation will alsoreturn on Saturday from 11am to 3pm.
It’s all going down Saturday, June 15, in the Family Interactive Area on the east side of Broadway and 14th. The Children's Museum of Denver and the Metropolitan Community Church of the Rockies will helping make the family interactive area the best yet!
There's a lot of family fun on The Center Stage in the park too! The Kids Parade steps off at noon, Dogs in Drag goes down at 12.45, and Kiddie Karaoke kicks off at 1pm!
The World Famous Dogs in Drag Competition
Saturday is also host to the Dogs in Drag pageant - so dress up your best friend and bring him or her on to compete for fun and prizes.
This event is always a sure people and poch pleaser! Before you participate though, be sure and consider the following:
Please keep in mind that only kid-friendly dogs who get along with other dogs, people and crowds should come to PrideFest. Sunday is typically too crowded for dogs to safely enjoy their PrideFest experience, so please only bring them along on Saturday. Keep the four-legged friends on a leash at all times, give them plenty of water and make sure he or she is licensed and tagged with current contact information. And of course, make sure you clean up after your dog!
There are plenty of prideful activities for families in June and throughout the weekend. Visit the PrideFest Events page for a full listing.
