PrideFest takes over Peace Plaza

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The 16th annual PrideFest hit the streets in Rochester for the first time since the legalization of gay marriage in the state.

People gathered for a day of events on the Peace Plaza celebrating the passing of the Marriage Equality Bill earlier this year.

Each year the group gathers for food and festivities.

While PrideFest is known as an event to promote gay and lesbian acceptance, it's also about human rights in general.

Peace Plaza was bursting with color this weekend and while most of the events were for humans some pets also made appearances.

Festivities wrapped up earlier Sunday evening.
