On June 1st, the annual Lanark County Pride parade hit the streets of Perth, heading towards a celebration in Last Duel Park.
This year’s theme was “50 Years — Looking back, moving forward”. Festivities at Last Duel Park included a welcome by Lanark Drumming Circle, speeches and live music.
Former Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne joined the festivities, giving a warmly received speech that focused on the importance of Pride events, particularly in small towns and rural areas.
It was a joyful, colour-filled celebration of life and love, the past and the future.
