(6.16) Good to have Greater City: Providence back up and running — Jef was having justifiable conniptions — and just in time to fill us in on Saturday’s PrideFest and Parade. Go here for info and map of the daytime events on South Water Street, and the evening’s Illuminated Parade which GC:PVD notes “. . . is back on its traditional route with the Reviewing Stand and play by play at PPAC.”
Grand Marshals this year are the Honorable Stephen J. Fortunato, and senior staff attorney at GLAD, Karen Loewy. I’ve seen the parade, it’s really a blast. Check out the 2012 Pride Guide calendar.
And speaking of organizations with website issues, AS220 has been down for a few days. But according to The Phoenix they will host the ‘Fuchsia is Now’ queer performance zone and dance party starting at 10pm.
Festival, noon to 8pm, South Water Street/Parade starts 8:30pm, Dorrance and Fountain Streets, Saturday, June 16
