On October 15, 2011, the city's annual Mid-South Pride parade will kick off on historic Beale Street, ending in a festival at Robert R. Church Park (corner of Fourth and Beale).
The venue change was announced over the weekend at a Mid-South Pride fund-raiser at Club Spectrum. The move marks a major shift in Pride parade tradition. For years, the annual march route began at Cooper-Young's First Congregational Church and ended at a festival in Peabody Park.
