News and Announcements
The 44th Annual Pride Parade is back on and we want you to be a part of it!
This year, Out for Kicks will have a float in the parade and we are calling for members to come participate to help have the best float yet.
What does this look like? This year will include:
- An OFK Pride Float – Theme is Lucid Dreams
- Cute outfits and accessories (stay tuned)
- Official Choreographed Dance to Lucid by Rina Sawayama prepared by the wonderful Tyler Barr!
- Snacks and refreshments to keep you fed and hydrated throughout the sunny day.
Note: You can also come the day-of the parade and walk with the float (e.g. carry the banner, dribble a soccer ball, etc.). In the past, we’ve heard that helping set-up and learning the dance has always been a fun way to spend the day.
Date: Sunday, July 31st

10:45am – Arrival (Truck decorating)
