Pride returned to the streets of downtown Newport Saturday afternoon June 25. The celebration included the Newport Pride Festival and Marketplace, held at the Newport Friends Meeting House along with a colorful bike “ride for pride” that drew support from allies and onlookers.
Dozens of community agencies and vendors took part in the festivities which moved from Equality Park to the lawn of the Meeting House this year. The family-friendly, pet-friendly event was a strong show of support for Newport’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community.
