Are you wondering how to celebrate Pride month? Idaho Falls Pride is celebrating its 9th year by offering a plethora of activities for the community to get involved this weekend, including dinner at MacKenzie River Pizza, Grill & Pub, a special Reading Time with the Queens and the main  event -- Pride Night with the Chukars.

Although there will be no parade this year, Idaho Falls Pride is thrilled to bring such a wide range of activities to the public. Popular swag items, including sweatshirts, mugs and hats will be available at the game upon donation. There will also be drag performers at the event, including Miss Jay and Mr. Cider, who will be available to take pictures and give away a few remaining tickets to the game.

“I’m excited to see the Chukars in their rainbow jerseys and to see a lot of pride flags around Melaleuca field,” said Kelly McCary, Idaho Falls Pride Development Director. “This partnership with the Chukars is special, because baseball is America’s pastime and this is a nice way to include the entire community, not just the LGBTQ+ community.”
