June Means PRIDE!

Updated: Jul 23, 2018

It's June! That means it's Pride month. We've already had the chance to celebrate with our friends in Central Maine at Central Maine Pride on Sunday, June 3rd. This past weekend, we celebrated with our friends in Belfast for Belfast has Pride on Saturday, June 9. More Pride celebrations are coming up, including Portland Pride on Saturday, June 16. Lewiston/Auburn Pride takes place on June 30 as well as Bar Harbor Pride on the same day!


In Bangor, we plan to have the biggest and best Pride celebration ever! See our website and Facebook pages for more information about each individual event.


So, for Bangor Pride, we have events scheduled for the entire week of June 17 - beginning with our Rainbow Run 5K sponsored by Orono Brewing Company. The registration fee is $25 and includes a t-shirt and cold beverage at the end of the race. Runners and walkers of all ages are encouraged to participate in this fun run (even leashed dogs are welcome). Dress up in your very best rainbow attire for a chance at a prize!
