The Grande Prairie Pride Society is excited to be repainting the rainbow crosswalk on 98 Street and we’re happy to announce that we’ll be adding the crosswalk across 103 Avenue to this years event, happening this June in honor of Pride Month. 

 

We are able to do this each year thanks to generous donations from community members. If you would like to help sponsor the cost of this year’s paint, please reach out to grandeprairiepridesociety@gmail.com.

The crosswalk will be repainted on June 3, 2024, weather permitting, and Everyone is invited to take part.

 

We will start painting at 10 a.m. and would love if you’d join us in the hours that follow at the intersection by City Hall and the Montrose Cultural Centre. We will have games, music, Pride Merchandise, and a barbecue on site cooking up burgers, hotdogs, and smokies; along with pop & snacks, so stop by for lunch and support our fundraiser to help us cover the cost of paint this year.
