Weekend package announced for Tarrant Pride

2010 Tarrant County Pride parade

Tarrant County Gay Pride Week Association has announced a weekend package for Fort Worth’s Pride celebration.

This year marks the 30th anniversary celebration (it’s older than Dallas’ Pride) and the parade will move downtown.

The weekend package includes a stay at the host hotel, the Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel & Spa, 1701 Commerce St., in downtown Fort Worth.

The celebration begins on Thursday, Sept. 29. The highlight of the day is an outdoor film screening at the Fort Worth Water Gardens.

Friday’s activities includes a trip to the Fort Worth Stockyards with lunch at Billy Bob’s Texas, then off to Cultural District via Molley the Trolley.

The parade and street festival takes place downtown on Saturday, Oct. 1, beginning at 10 a.m.,  and the annual Pride Picnic is Sunday, Oct. 2, from noon to 6 p.m. at Trinity Park.

Full details are on the TCGPWA website.
