Kitchener - Kitchener's annual tri-Pride Festival and live music show welcomed hundreds to the city's downtown core on Saturday, proving that small cities can measure up to Toronto after all.
Hosted by tri-Pride Kitchener-Waterloo, the all-day live music show and festival was the final celebration to end a week of pride events throughout the region, which includes Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, and its surrounding area in Southern Ontario.
tri-Pride is the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Queer) Festival that takes places in the city annually.
The festival, held at the city's Civic Square, featured vendor booths from local LGBTQ community groups, a kid's area for family-friendly activities, a licensed area for adult-friendly activities, and a main stage outside of City Hall.
Kicking off at noon, the event ran into the after-party the next day and featured an assortment of local DJs and performers, including an hour of drag performances hosted by Miss Drew, and a full-length set from Grammy Award winning R & B singer Thelma Houston.; it was a combination of these two main-stage events that brought the biggest crowds out on Saturday.
