The Sacramento Pride Festival blasted through town, Saturday, June 6th, and took place at the Capitol Mall between 3rd and 7th Streets in Midtown Sacramento. The high temperatures didn’t douse people’s spirits, attendance was in the thousands, with no shortage of enthusiastic faces and festive outfits. High heels, thongs, tutus, sequins and rainbows were as far as the eye could see.
The pavement was lined solid with vendor booths, block after block. Businesses were giving away a payload of goodies; sunscreen, condoms and stickers all included. People danced under the DJ’s tent, while others kept cool in the shade. The festival came to a close with a bang when Belinda Carlisle (former lead singer of The Go-Go’s) hit the stage and started singing an incantation of classics that had the crowds swooning.
