Pride in the Park rescheduled for Aug. 24

Mercer Island’s Pride in the Park community celebration has been rescheduled for 2-5 p.m. on Aug. 24 at Mercerdale Park.

The originally scheduled June 15 event was postponed after high winds, thunder and lightning were forecasted to occur during the outdoor event.

PRIDE+ and the city of Mercer Island will present the free, fun, welcoming, family-friendly event.

The all-ages event will feature a unicorn race, RuPAWS puppy parade and costume contest, yard games, face painting, a food truck, ice cream truck, live music by a 1980s cover band, 88.9 KMIH The Bridge and several community partners will have booths to share information and resources.
