5K Pride Run – 10am
Help us kick off Pride Saturday by joining us for our annual 5K! The race follows a route through scenic and historic Prospect Park. It is always a great event in which to participate or watch all the fun! We are pleased to announce that we will have a Trans/GNC category for our run this year for folks who have felt limited by our male and female options in the past.
A portion of the revenue generated will be donated to Cheer New York, an all-volunteer non-profit cheerleading squad, made up of LGBT adults and straight allies. Their mission is to support the fight against AIDS and other life-challenging conditions by raising money for local charities through their “Cheer for Life” fund.
The race directors are working to make this years run the best in Brooklyn Pride’s history. Every runner will receive a Brooklyn Pride Run tech t-shirt and a custom engraved Brooklyn Pride Run finisher’s medal. There will also be prizes for the top overall and age group finishers (19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+).
MultiCultural Festival 11:00AM – 5:00PM
A cross-section of the borough’s business, community and city-wide organizations line six blocks of 5th Avenue between 1st and 9th Streets.
Extended by two blocks this year! Look for more space and seating near our stages so you can enjoy our entertainment and connect with other members of your community!
