We’re pleased to share a review of Saturday’s Pride Festival and Parade by a young area mother.

The Mansfield Pride Festival and Parade 2021 was the most successful yet boasting over 40 vendors and many new local entries into the parade.

Central Park was booming with people aged 0 and beyond to celebrate love in all of its forms.

With fantastic music in the gazebo, a “Kidz Zone” with crafts and games as well as drag queen story time. This was a personal favorite of my 4 year old (pictured above).

Many vendors from all over the area displayed their LGBTQIA+ goodies along with games to win freebies from their tables. Delicious food vendors joined the mix.

In closing, this event was a great one full of love, light, and hope.
