Puppy Pride 2019
Twin Cities Pride
The North Star Kennel Club will once again be participating in the Twin Cities Pride Celebration. Remember…this year’s Pride is a week earlier than usual, owing to the WorldPride celebration in New York City, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots!
- We will be working an hour-long shift at the Minnesota Leather Pride booth starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 22.
- Walkies in the Park: 2019 Edition will start at 2 p.m., immediately after our shift at the Minnesota Leather Pride booth.
- Based on member feedback, we have decided to forego a separate parade unit this year. Instead, we will be marching with the large Leather Pride flag at the front of the parade! We will assemble at 2nd Avenue South and 3rd Street South at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 23.
The Lead Pack will be reviewing options for participating in the Duluth/Superior Pride Celebration at the June membership meeting. If you are interested in participating in an NSKC delegation, join us at this meeting or contact the Lead Pack.
We have also learned that the Twin Ports Kennel Club, a new group that has formed in Duluth/Superior, will be hosting a Pride mosh following the Duluth/Superior Pride Parade this coming Labor Day weekend. As we get more details, we will share them with you!
