Hundreds of people packed the park despite the colder weather.

More than ten booths showcased LGBTQ health information and history.

Organizers spent months planning the event.

Alex Baxter told WYMT this event is a great way to include everyone from all walks of life in a community.

"These citizens that are part of the LGBTQ community, this is a way for them to live their true lives and be open and be excepted here and be able to contribute," said Baxter.

Some booths also featured face painting sidewalk chalk.

A dog parade along with local musicians and drag queen performances kept people there entertained.

The event lasted until 4:00 p.m.
