2nd Annual Kenosha Pride March scheduled for July 12


Kenosha Pride
wishes to announce the 2nd Annual Pride March on July 12, 2014 from Noon until 2:00pm.

The march will take place on a weekend outside of Pride Month because Kenosha Pride wishes to remind people that support and unity should happen all year long.

Kenosha’s Pride March will start with a sign making party at the starting point of Library Park (60th St. and 8th Ave) beginning at 11:00am. Participants may create and bring their own signs or join the festivities early to make a sign. Following the march, there will be a “Block Party” hosted by Kenosha pride on the lot just north of Trolley Dog Restaurant (5501 6th Ave, Kenosha, WI).

The march route will be as follows: Start at Library Park (60th St and 8th Ave) moving West to Sheridan Road on 60th St, North on Sheridan Rd to 46th St, East on 46th St to 7th Ave, South on 7th Ave and merge onto 6th Ave, continuing South on 6th Ave to the ending location of the “Block Party” in the lot across from Trolley Dogs Restaurant (5501 6th Ave, Kenosha, WI). Participants are encouraged to walk the entire route; however, participants are welcome to join in anytime during the March to show support and join in the fun.

Kenosha Pride also announces a performance by New York-based gay musician Chad Mica during the Block Party.

Kenosha Pride is proud to publicly announce the first people/organizations to announce their support for Kenosha’s 2nd Annual Pride March: Trolley Dogs Restaurant and Club ICON. Kenosha Pride would also like to thank the Milwaukee Pride Parade for their assistance and guidance.

Kenosha Pride is a committee made up of people who cross age, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation lines. Its purpose is to bring about awareness and support of the LGBT community in Kenosha, WI.
