FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- After being canceled last year because of the pandemic, the Fort Wayne Pride Festival is back at Headwaters Park.
The event kicks off on Friday at 7 p.m. and runs until midnight.
On Saturday, the festival is open from noon until midnight.
Admission is $5 each day.
There will be music, food, vendors, a beer tent and a drag show.
The festival will also have activities for kids and helpful resources for the LGBTQ+ community.
Event director Nikki Hultz says she's especially excited to be back after last year's cancellation.
“My favorite thing is just getting that energy from the crowd," Hultz said. "Being able to see everybody come out, be themselves and have a celebration of who we are. And get together and find that community we’ve been missing for the last couple of years.”
Hultz recommended people who aren't vaccinated against COVID-19 wear a mask at the festival.
There will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the event space.
Organizers said there will be no march this year, but hope to bring it back in 2022.
