I am from Princeton, Indiana, so I can tell you first-hand how amazing it is to see that a successful inclusive event continues for the second year in a row.  And by inclusive, I mean a Pride event that literally everyone can attend.

Princeton - Back in the Day

Now, for you to really understand how important an event like this is for Princeton, you should have a little perspective from a native. Keep in mind that I grew up in the 80s and 90s, and so much has changed in the world since then. But when I was in school, if you were different in any way, shape, or form you could count on getting made fun of and feeling like an outsider. I went to public, catholic, and Christian schools, and things were the same no matter where I went. So, now that I see there are leaders and business owners opening the door for inclusivity, this feels like history in the making for me.

2023 River City Pride Parade and Festival

On Saturday, June 3, 2023, the city of Evansville came together for a vibrant and colorful day of love and inclusivity in support of our LGBTQIA+ community. The day kicked off with a parade and then continued with a full day of festival excitement from vendor booths to drag shows and everything in between, including a featured performance by A'Keria C. Davenport of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 11 and RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 6. It was a beautiful day full of beautiful people and Tymeallo Studios captured that beauty perfectly, and with permission, we are sharing some of the photos from the day's events here with you.

In states where fireworks are legal to purchase, stores have to rely on creative names to entice buyers. It's not like they can just go out and light off a test rocket to show customers.

Here are some of the best fireworks names we found when searching leading industry stores' online inventory.
