CHICO, Calif. - On Sunday hundreds of people gathered at One Mile Park in Chico for a brunch to mark the end of Gay Pride Festival 2018.
The festivities included live music and lots of food for brunch, and there was a long line waiting to eat some eggs, bacon and fruit.
The Chico Stonewall Alliance Center pulled this all together in hopes of giving friends and family from the LGBT community a sense of comfort.
“When I see the community coming out to celebrate this way it’s really wonderful to see these many people. Especially in an area like this where it's a little bit more rural so not everyone here feels comfortable being themselves. And to see these many people come out not only to be themselves but to see others being themselves is really cool,” said Alyssa Larson, a member of Chico Stonewall Alliance.
Chico Pride has been going on since last Thursday and the four-day event is always held the week before fall Chico State classes begin.
