Thank you to all our magnificent volunteers for organizing and running our booth, our marchers for representing First Church, and our Community Steelband for providing some awesome entertainment! Check out our Facebook page for photos from the day.
Come represent and share God’s boundless love with the wider Akron community at the Akron Pride Festival and Equality March on Saturday, August 26.
If you’d like to carpool to the start of the march, please meet at the church at 9am. Otherwise, plan to meet point-person Amanda Cole and the rest of our group outside the Highland Square Library by 10am. The march steps off promptly at 11am in Highland Square. Marchers will walk 1.5 miles to the festival at Hardesty Park which begins at noon. Make sure you look out for the First Church Community Steelband playing for the crowd at the library!
The festival at Hardesty Park will run from noon until 8pm with live entertainment, food and a variety of vendors. If you would like to volunteer in the First Church booth at the festival, please contact the church office.
