It is the year 2014 - and Pembroke, Ontario's smallest city by area, has yet to have a pride walk of it's very own! Legalized in 2005, homosexual marriages and common-law partnerships are on the rise in Canada. As an under represented group in this general area we need a day to highlight, rejoice and celebrate our integrated city. Times and views are changing - to be inclusive is democratic and progressive. We are the future and together we can build a better, bigger and bright tomorrow so that all may feel welcome in our beautiful city.

This walk's attire theme is: RAINBOW

Prizes for the top (3) most colorful people!
