Pacific Pride Festival Highlights at Chase Palm Park
By Robert Bernstein
Pacific Pride hosted their third annual celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Pride at Chase Palm Park.
Here are all of my photos and videos from the Pacific Pride Festival!
I was not able to eat solid food as I was still recovering from my recent surgery. But my wife enjoyed the "Flip Side Filipino Fusion" from Ventura which was back again this year. It took a half-hour to get the food, though!
We only stayed for a couple of hours as I did not have much stamina. But we got to enjoy the Burlesque performances which were definitely a highlight!
Here are few of my video clips of the Burlesque performances. Be warned: The dancing is PG rated, but some of the music lyrics not so much. There were a lot of children there in this public park and the Emcee had to "explain" this to the children.
It was a pleasure seeing so many different kinds of people hanging out in the park and having a good time!
We came down on the bus from Goleta. One amusing bit I noticed when we were back at the Transit Center waiting for the bus home: A Santa Barbara fire truck parked across the street with the legend Pride Protection and Prevention. How appropriate for the occasion!
