This year Wakefield celebrated the 30th anniversary of Pride Day! With sunny skies and smiling faces, the day was made possible by the hard work of all of our wonderful vendors, volunteers and attendees. The annual parade kicked off at 12 noon and showcased some of our favorite floats to date. The antique cars held their own and the huge presence of fire trucks, police and ambulances really brought the parade together. A special thank you should be mentioned to our very own Tom Dube for creating a float for our past Citizens of the Year and including them into the parade. Tumbledown owner, Dave was gracious enough to donate his trailer for the event as well for all of the citizens to ride on.
Teresa Williams, our 2017 Citizen of the Year road on the back of her husband, Joe’s motorcycle making her way through the parade. That had never been done before! Business of the Year, Hayes Real Estate showed up in the parade with Broker, Brad Hayes on board along with some family members.
DJ, photo booths, pig scrambles, kung-fu demonstrations, face painting, free hugs, lobster/pig raffles, 50/50, handmade crafts, homemade meatball and sausage subs, homemade cajun food, fried dough and much more were all thanks to the amazing participation of our vendors.
Thank you again, to everyone who participated. Without all of you, Pride Day would not continue to be the event that it is. We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
