A community gathers to celebrate Sandusky Pride

If you think Sandusky is all rollercoasters and ferries, you are missing out on one of the biggest features of this 25,000 person city: Pride!

On Saturday, June 22, well over a thousand people gathered for the Sandusky Pride Festival. With a Drag Volleyball event and a Pride Comedy held in the days leading up to the Festival, Saturday’s celebration kicked off with the Sandusky Pride Parade from Washington Street to Water Street. The community then gathered in the Jackson Street Parking Lot for a family-friendly event with live performers, a kids zone, rows and rows of non-profit booths, and food trucks galore. 

Prizm was on the scene to capture some images of the rainbow revelry.
