The 3rd Annual DeLand Pride Block Party is a celebration of LGBT History Month and National Coming Out Day. The event is quite a popular festival; in its first year, attendance surpassed the initial estimate of 250 attendees by a long shot — over 750 people showed up to celebrate! Since then, the annual Block Party has evolved into a much larger festival with a new location and a wide range of entertainment events. This year, expect health and counseling services, and many other vendors and entertainment. There will also be crafts, boutique crafts, jewelry and so much more in the community marketplace. Even just walking through the goodies at the vendor setup will be a sight to behold. Plus, there will be live performances from well-known entertainers, with live music acts as well. DeLand Pride also hosts monthly pride nights with various themes, typically every third Saturday of the month at Abbey Bar. There are also First Thursday Socials from 6 to 8 p.m. where all are welcome. Please visit the website for more information.
