Stonewall Summer Pride 2012 will feature the first ever Children’s Pride Park designed specifically for the kids to enjoy.

“We are very excited about our first Stonewall Summer Pride kids zone at Hagen Park in Wilton Manors,” said Drew Miller Board Member of Stonewall Summer Pride.  “We think the Children’s Pride Park with its attractions and events will be a big hit with the families.”

Some of the activities planned include fire truck painting provided by the Broward Sheriff’s Office, a Hockey Rink from the Florida Panthers and a train that will be included in the Stonewall Summer Pride Parade.

There will also be other attractions and activities including slides, face painting, spin art and other surprises.

Stonewall Summer Pride comes to Fort Lauderdale on June 24 and is presented by the Rainbow Business Coalition of Greater Fort Lauderdale and the City of Wilton Manors. The party begins at noon when Wilton Drive comes alive with the Stonewall Summer Pride Street Festival, which will feature live entertainment, over 125 exhibition booths and the Children's Pride Park. The festival stage will feature entertainment all day long with a variety of acts sure to please the vibrant crowd.

At 7 p.m. sharp, the Stonewall Summer Pride Twilight Parade takes to the street with fabulous floats and costumes.  The parade will begin on 20th Street and run north, up Wilton Drive ending at 5 Points.

Following the parade, Andy Bell, lead singer of Erasure, will take the stage for what promises to be a memorable and exciting evening filled with timeless dance classics. More entertainment will be announced in the next week.
