The middle of June isn't that far away, so it's not too early to begin planning for Denver PrideFest 2013, scheduled for June 15 and 16 this year in Civic Center Park. Sexy `80s pop star Taylor Dayne will headline the Center Stage on Saturday, followed on Sunday by sassy Weather Girl Martha Wash on Sunday. Bring your umbrella -- it'll be raining men!
To jog your memory:
In the meantime, now's the time to sign up for the June 16 CoorsLight PrideFest Parade down Colfax Avenue from Cheesman Park to Civic Center; applications, available now at the PrideFest website, are due by June 1. E-mail Kathleen Rooney for information.
Interested in volunteering for the fest? You'll have to wait until May 1 to do that. Then visit Denver PrideFest online for the details, and you'd better work fast, when the application goes up: The best shifts will be snapped up quickly.
