A DAMP and miserable Tralee town centre was certainly livened up on Saturday when the Kerry Pride Festival staged their parade on Saturday.

About 50 people took part in the event from the Brandon car park down Princes Street, around by The Brogue, into The Mall and up Denny Street.

When they reached the Ashe Memorial Hall there was a drum dance extravaganza and a real party atmosphere with some young onlookers also joining in the fun.

Margaret O’Donoghue of Kerry Pride explained the reason behind the event.

“The purpose of the march is to give visibility to LGBT people living and working in Kerry every day. This is an occasion once a year for them to come out and be proud of who they are and not to hide,” said Margaret.

Events have been running as part of the festival all week with ‘The Night of Pride’ ¬†taking place in the Earl of Desmond on Saturday night and a family fun day in the Town Park on Sunday.
