300 Celebrate Oneonta’s 1st Pridefest


300 Celebrate

First Pridefest

Over 300 people, some from as far away as New York City, gathered in Oneonta’s Muller Plaza this morning to kick off Oneonta’s first Pridefest. After speeches, songs and honoring the dead, the revelers paraded down to the large pavilion in Neahwa Park for an afternoon of family fun activities. There was live music, carnival games, Zumba, vendors, singers and, of course, a drag race.
