Join Us at PRIDE Parade and Festival

The Heartland PRIDE parade and festival is July 13th, and Second Unitarian is sharing in the fun! Here’s some things to know:

Show your unity and join us by walking in the parade.

2U Staging Site: Our staging site is at California St. between 15th and 16th Streets (near the PortaPotty). Plan to arrive around 9:30 a.m. Parade starts at 10 a.m. (Vehicle traffic will be blocked from the entire parade route, staging area and dispersal area starting at 8 a.m.)

Getting there: 

  • ORBT:We will leave from the Westroads ORBT Transit Center at 8:48 a.m. (1099 N 102nd St. at northwest corner of mall parking lot.) Prepurchase your tickets via the Umo phone app or buy them at the Westroads ORBT kiosks. (Roundtrip will require two 1-Ride Umo Paper Tokens – $1.25 each way. If using cash, try to have exact change, as kiosk only provides change as a credit to purchase future rides).
