Saturday July 26th is the infamous annual Halifax pride parade. Thousands of people will come out to watch, participate, show their alliance and unity that really, one love is human nature, and this day marks this fact.

We sure know how to pump out an awesome pride festival and parade. See you Saturday 1:30PM parade start time. MORE DETAILS CLICK HERE.

She is the face of the their campaign and will be on the big float, helping to gather clothing donations from the parade goers to help the kids that are in desperate need of help.
