2023 Montclair Pride's Recap

By Jessica Kline, publisher and editor, Macaroni KID Clifton-Montclair June 15, 2023

Montclair's second annual Pride Festival in downtown Montclair is always the most fun day in our area! Think lots of color, lots of energy, lots of love, lots of joy, and lots of acceptance. In case you missed it, we wanted to share some of our favorite memories from the magical day! Pride isn't just for those in the LGBTQ+ community, pride is bigger than that. Some of the words festival goers used to describe pride included: love, acceptance, their mom, their dad, their son, wearing what they wanted, being who they are, and the list goes on and on. Gay or straight, aren't we all looking to be accepted for who we are, how we feel, and what we love?

We look forward to next year's Pride Festival and anticipate it will only be bigger and better!
