Event celebrates love in the Hub City

JACKSON, Tenn.—The Hub City highlighted a special community during their annual event.

The Jackson Pride had their fourth annual pride event on Saturday afternoon hosted at Conger Park.

They had over 60 vendors selling items from crocheted handmade knick-knacks, stickers, and food for visitors to enjoy.

This event was to celebrate and show that love is love.

Organizers of this event also shared that this event reflects how diverse their community is.

“It feels great! We started this two years ago. We knew there was a need to create Jackson Pride, obviously to have an amazing event and to raise awareness. And also, we have a scholarship fund and it’s a great way to raise money for that as well,” said Darren Lykes, event coordinator.

The fun doesn’t end at the park. There will also be a “Pride After Dark” event Saturday evening at the Carl Perkins Civic Center.
