Pride Fest Weekend in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--Sunday marks the end of Yakima's annual Pride Fest.

The three-day event is put on by the Central Washington Diversity Coalition.

Over the course of the weekend, several hundred people stopped by to celebrate acceptance and equality.

Organizers called this year's Pride Fest especially important with the new "Everything but marriage" laws coming into effect later this year.

"Equality is our biggest message, equality for everybody," Cent. Wash. Diversity Coalition President Sonya Vosberg said.  "That's what the coalition is about. we want to help and not conflict, we don't want to take away from somebody else."

Unlike previous years, Pride Fest lasted the whole weekend, going on until late Sunday night.

If you want to check it out, they'll be at Club 54 in Yakima until 1 a.m.
