Weather Forces Pride to Cancel Saturday; Will Resume Sunday as Scheduled

The annual two-day Palm Beach Pride festival was forced to cancel its first day Saturday morning due to inclement weather. 

“We have been closely monitoring the weather for several days. Unfortunately, the shifting patterns, combined with the intense weather overnight, has flooded Bryant Park. Heavy rain is expected to move through the area early today,” a statement from Compass, the organizer of Pride reads. “Safety is first in all things we do and we do not feel that it will be possible to ensure people's safety.” 

 Pride will resume Sunday with their parade, which starts at 11 a.m. on Lake Avenue in Downtown Lake Worth Beach and will be led by members of the Compass Youth Program and the 2024 Grand Marshal, Chris Rhoades. After the parade, attendees will head to Bryant Park for the festival, which has been extended till 7 p.m. 

“We value our community and we always put safety first. With the projected intense rainfall for Saturday, we did not feel we could provide the safest environment possible,” said Michael Riordan, Director of Media and Communication for Compass. “We appreciate the outpouring of support from our community, vendors, volunteers, and sponsors and we will do everything in our power to have an amazing experience for everyone on Sunday, March 24, 2024.”
