Philly Pride, its executive director, senior advisor, coordinators and event staff, would like to thank the community for making the June 10, 2012 Pride Day events our most successful:
OUR PARADE WINNERS
BEST BAR -- Tabu Sports Float &
BEST FLOAT -- LGBT Senior Housing Project

|TABLE ONLY SPACES LEFT!!! There are no spaces left for 10 foot tents/popups. If you don't call now you will not get a space at the Festival.

168 GROUPS PARTICIPATING WITH US (Major Sponsors highlighted)
As a gay pride organization we network with all components of the LGBT community and our straight friends to organize our events. Without them, we could not do what we do. We thank them for adding their uniqueness, character, color, and spark to make Pride Day what it is.

We are unveiling a new food area which we call the "Food Ramp." It is located along the long sloping "Walk of Firsts" which is the back wall of the Great Plaza. The following food vendors will be there: Beka's Foods, Festival Food, Innovative Catering, Maui Wowi, N&A Catering, Sherri's Crab Cakes, Stella Jeanes Festival Foods, Three Thai Sushi. Other food servers, such as Dog Gone Dog and Irish Ice are on the plaza itself. We have never had so many food vendors. Penn's Landing has completed their renovation in this area and it is now fully planted with new park benches. Save your calories for June 10. We are bringing in portable bathrooms to augment the Penn's Landing Facilities (all our facilities are Unisex).
Home Depot will be building bird houses in the Family Zone with the kids. Get a free child's I.D. bracelet from New York Life, also in the Family Zone.
All participating organizations will be listed as they return their applications. Our on-line application has been removed as we have reached capacity. Please call the Pride office if you still wish to attend.
