After rain forced the cancellation of Evanson Pride Celebrations – but not the Parade – on June 26, the events have been rescheduled for this Saturday, July 17. The Community Picnic will now be held at 4 p.m. at Ingraham Park, and the Candle Lighting and Remembrance Ceremony at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center.
The picnic will feature live music by Tiny Bubbles and Evanston’s DJ Serge, as well as tabling and prizes from local organizations. Parking is available in the Civic Center lot. The event is still BYO (bring your own) food, chairs, blankets or other picnic items. Evanston Pride will provide bottled water and soda.
The Candle Lighting and Remembrance Ceremony will feature speeches and readings by local leaders and community members.
