HISTORIC KENWOOD HOSTS ST. PETE PRIDE
Where might you expect to find the largest Pride celebration in Florida? You may be surprised to learn that it's not in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or even Orlando. Rather, St. Pete Pride
, known as "Pride in Paradise," throws the Sunshine State's biggest Pride event. What began with a modest tally of some 13,000 attendees in 2003 has blossomed into a major festival, now drawing in excess of 75,000 participants and spectators. St. Pete Pride takes place at the end of June and draws folks from throughout the St. Petersburg, Tampa Bay, and St. Pete Beaches region. A video by Visit St. Pete Clearwater here

HKNA FLOAT AND BOOTH
The Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association is proud to participate in St. Pete Pride. Each year, Kenwood volunteers design and build a float, march in the parade, and greet visitors at an HKNA booth at the street festival. Watch a video of our 2010 float.
We do have some "home-made" videos our entries in the Pride parade.
The 2016 parade here at the 30:40 mark.
