Looking to get your pride on in the beautiful city of Indianapolis? Have no worries. Circle City IN Pride celebrates 25 years out of the closet this year from June 1st through the 9th. The event will feature a festival, 5k run, a pet pride competition, comedy, cabaret, concerts, film fest night, and a community picnic. Along with the chance to showcase your pet's abilities, the 3rd Annual Pet Pride will feature adoption opportunities for pet lovers who are wanting to take in some more furry friends. There's a little bit of everything for every kind of person at this event.
Those who run the festival are actually still looking for vendors and entertainment so head their way if you're interested. Parade participants also still have time to register and submit fees if they wish to enter a float into the spectacle, which takes place on Saturday, June 8th. As for the actual festival, which takes place at the American Legion Mall, there is no cost for attendance or participation, just a suggested $5 donation. All ages are invited to this event.
We are able to happily announce that our very own Hilton Garden Inn is supported by Circle City IN Pride and is touted as being the Indianapolis area hotel to go to if you want to see or participate in the event. We are just four blocks south of where the Festival is located; click on Indianapolis hotel packages to book your reservation at the special Indy Pride rate. Whether you're traveling by yourself or with a group of friends and family, this is the place to be! Since the celebration lasts for longer than a week, you'll want to make sure you have a proper place to eat and sleep in order to keep up your energy levels for this fantastic celebration!
