It was a pride-filled day in White Rock on Saturday (July 24) as the city gathered for an afternoon of performances, food and many other family-friendly activities during the inaugural White Rock Pride Family Day event.

White Rock Pride Society, in collaboration with the City of White Rock, held the gathering, with this year’s theme encouraging inclusivity of all people.

Hundreds showed out in rainbow gear or simply as they were to celebrate with the city.

A market lined Miramar Plaza with all types of foods and other vendors available to peruse and enjoy, a kids zone saw many children turn out with a variety of entertainment, including drag shows and dancing taking place.

White Rock Pride Society’s president Ernie Klassen shared in a video on Facebook on Sunday that Pride in the city is especially important for youth.

The society aims to show the public that “there is a place for everyone in the community and just let the youth of White Rock know that it’s OK to come out and be a part of a community.”
