Celebrate with Spruce Grove and four weeks of Pride!
I am reaching out to you today with the hope that you would like to participate in events to celebrate Pride in our City of Spruce Grove!
Our Spruce Grove GSA usually participates in events in person with our communities.
Due to the social distancing factors brought on by Covid-19, we will be moving some of our events online for 2021.
Last year two of our GSA kids had the idea of holding a car Pride Parade in Spruce Grove!
We had a fabulous turn-out and we would like to bring this back again!
between 12 pm & 4 pm on June 5th.
Bring a non-perishable donation for the Parkland Food Bank
or bring a donation of recyclable bottles & cans for the Spruce Grove GSA.
With each donation you will receive a rainbow band with the words
PRIDE / Love is Love, embossed on the bands.
While there, learn about our GSA and purchase Pride items.
There will be sidewalk chalk to leave messages of love and equality on the sidewalks.
Please ensure to maintain proper social distancing, wear a mask, and use the hand sanitizer provided.
Upload a photo of your Pride decorations to our Facebook event page or email a photo to email@example.com
Upload a photo of you in all your decadence to our Facebook event page or email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
Location to be announced in Spruce Grove
Decorate your car, bicycle, bus, or motorcycle! All vehicles should be decorated in some way for Pride month. Think colourful! (Balloons, messages of inclusion, equality, love) We are requesting folks to “dress their cars”in ribbons, Pride flags, rainbows, signs of love, support, diversity, and equality.
Please come with your decorations pre-assembled, balloons inflated and tied, signs painted.
We will be reaching out to local businesses for prizes and donations, and we are hoping that they will also participate! If you know of any local businesses that may be interested, please have them reach out through email or through our social media pages.
Happy Pride 2021!!!
