Pride Rochester 2009

Yes, I know. We just did the post on Pride Twin Cities. I am a little behind on our postings! Rochester Pride was very different than Twin Cities Pride. Compare 200,000 people to 400 people. Rochester was more personal and relaxed. We had a chance to talk with participants for a longer period of time. We didn't need to choose where to eat because there was only one food vendor and I might add, their food was excellent! The entertainment was great. The mayor read a proclamation and meandered around the park. We didn't meet him but we were impressed that he made an intentional appearance at the event. The vendors were only there for 5 hours but it was quality time on a beautiful day in a shaded park downtown Rochester. If you are in that area next year, make an effort to attend. You'll enjoy it.
