Best new party in Pinellas Park: Pride at the Village

Pride at the Village

A series of new Pride events hit Pinellas County this year, including Pride at the Village, Gulfport Pride, and St. Pete Pride’s Arts and Qulture. There were so many that I couldn’t bring myself to choose a single one as the “best new pride event.” Instead, I’m giving all three an award, starting with John Gascot’s Pride at the Village. Pride at the Village brought live music, burlesque, drag performances, a rainbow balloon selfie wall and a pet costume contest to Pinellas Arts Village. It was easily the best party I’ve ever attended in Pinellas Park. I look forward to its return next year. pinellasartsvillage.com
