Twin Cities Pride celebration to go ahead virtually

Pride will take place virtually from June 27-28 this year. 

After previously postponing the event, the organizers of Twin Cities Pride have announced that this year's festival will be a virtual one instead.

The popular event was set to be held over June 27-28 in Minneapolis, but the COVID-19 outbreak led to it being shelved along with many other events planned for this summer.

With the ban on large gatherings expected to continue well into the year, Pride organizers have instead unveiled a virtual celebration for this year's event.

From June 27-28, attendees can check out a virtual marketplace showcasing local vendors, concerts, art — and even virtual versions of the Rainbow Run 5K and Pride Parade.

Essential workers have been named as the Parade Grand Marshal. 

“Twin Cities Pride may look different in 2020, but we’re excited to celebrate with everyone in a new way,” said Twin Cities Pride Board Chair Darcie Baumann in a statement.

"We’re also very grateful we can continue supporting our vendors and small business partners."
