The Second Annual Middlebury Pride Festival invites people to the Middlebury town green for an afternoon of fun. The parade, which begins at 1 p.m., will march from College Park (where the old town offices used to be) up Main Street to the Town Green led by Grand Marshal Nicolas Leslie and local youth; all are welcome to join in.
Then, look for a Drag Queen Story Hour on the green between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. It will be led by Drag Queens Emoji Nightmare and Miss Beth. The family-friendly festival on the green, which lasts until 5 p.m., will also feature games, vendors, live music and more.
Indoor and outdoor quiet areas will be available, including a masked, accessible, indoor rest space provided by Gather on Merchants Row. Activities for children will include a bounce house, a preschool play area, kid-friendly crafts, and games. A drag queen story hour will include a craft and special guest Lieutenant Governor David Zuckerman.
