Salmon Arm Has Its Very First Pride Festival

2020 has been an uncertain year, but Salmon Arm brought some Pride to its community, having its very first Pride Festival.

That was the enthusiastic consensus on Friday afternoon, Oct. 16 from people attending the Salmon Arm Pride Project Arts & Awareness Festival, the first of its kind in the community.

“The display is impressive, very impressive, and it’s something that everyone should see,” was Patrick Ryley’s response to the exhibition at the Salmon Arm Art Gallery. Ryley has long been a proponent of equality and inclusion for gay folks.
