According to weather reports, Mother Nature is an ally to Utah’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and ally community, as the forecast is showing 80 degrees and sunny on Saturday and 85 degrees on Sunday for the annual Utah Pride Festival.
Few who were at Pride several years ago when it was cold and rainy will forget that event. Rain soaked parade participants and watchers, and the Utah Pride Center was left with thousands of unsold bottles of water. The crowds didn’t wain as much as one would expect, but they surely did not need cold water and beer that year, deeply affecting what the Festival took in to support the Center that year.
Early Saturday will likely be in the mid to upper 60s for the Pride 5K, which is perfect running weather.
Early Sunday should be in the lower 70s for the Utah Pride Parade.
