Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is proclaiming Saturday, June 18, 2022, as Warren County Pride Day, according to a news release.

"Warren County Pride Day is a time to unite and denounce discrimination and violence toward LGBTQ individuals, to promote self-affirmation, dignity, and equality, and to mobilize communities," the proclamation says. The commonwealth is proud to honor the history and contributions of LGBTQ communities within our state and throughout the nation." 

The third annual Warren County Pride Day will be held Saturday at Betts Park from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

It will feature speakers and performers, games, activities, bounce houses, vendors and area agencies. There will also be a costume competition for both people and pets.

The event has been organized by local pride supporters and is meant to be an inclusive, all-ages family event celebrating diversity and promoting equality, acceptance, tolerance and love, according to organizers.
