Dayton Pride celebration shifts to ‘reverse’ parade, more distanced events
This year’s Dayton Pride celebration was originally pushed back from June 5 to Aug. 21-23 in the hopes that the spread of the coronavirus would be under control. However, amid worsening concerns, the organizers decided to take a different approach to practice social distancing. The event is now only Aug. 22 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., and will feature a ‘reverse’ parade where spectators drive in decorated cars past static displays on Second Street, as well as a live broadcast with local dignitaries, entertainers, live bands, and more.
