Pridefest Draws Large Crowds Despite Rain


Even periodic heavy rains did not deter large crowds from turning out for the first full in-person Springfield Pridefest in three years.


After a two-year layoff because of COVID, the celebration of the LGBTQ community in Springfield drew thousands of people in its return on Saturday.


Dozens of vendors took part in the event, and organizers say they’re pleased that so many turned out despite the unfavorable weather conditions.
