ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- It's Pride Week in St. Cloud. Organizers are asking residents and businesses to show their colors throughout the week.

They have events planned every day this week starting with a Pride Skate at the Skatin' Place Monday.

Spokeswoman Angel Hight says they have a few new events this year including a Burlesque Dinner at Arroy on Wednesday night.

Yes, we are very luck this year to partner with Arroy, we met with them and they were exited to have a burlesque show. There are still tickets available.

Spokeswoman Meredith Rosenbaum says another new event is the free Senior Pride Bingo and Brunch on Thursday at First United Methodist Church in Sartell.

This is the first one in our community for people who are older residents in the LGBTQ+ communities, and allies, their friends.

Hight says they have a record number of vendors this year for Pride in the Park on Saturday.

Last year we had about 115 and this year we are up to 120.  We'll still take applications from anyone wanting to join us.  We're so excited because we are probably the second largest Pride in Minnesota now.
