Looking for some fun under the sun served with a big dose of Pride? Come on down to the Stonewall Street Festival- Pride of Greater Fort Lauderdale, June 16 - 22, 2008!
The theme of the Stonewall Street Festival 2008 is Sizzling with Pride! It is a full week's worth of events, parties, food and entertainment ... and the First Annual Night Parade!
And you know me- give me a reason to dress up, especially if I get to wear lights and sparkly things, and I'm there!
The week culminates with two big events:
Saturday, June 21st 1ST ANNUAL NIGHT PARADE & STREET PARTY
Start the celebration off at Rosie's Bar & Grill with a special t-dance starting at 5pm.
