ARBOR VITAE - Last summer the Northwoods LBGT community and allies came together to celebrate love, diversity and acceptance.
After last year's successful festival, the Rainbow Hodags planned an even bigger one for this year.
More than 75 people celebrated gay pride at the second annual Pride Fest in Arbor Vitae.
Lots of laughter, live music, and dancing filled the park.
Activities included a pot luck, silent auction and drag show.
Founder of the Rainbow Hodags Bill Bragg said this event takes place to remind others that the LBGT community exists and encourages peace.
"It's not granted that a rural place would have groups and events like this but that's something that the Northwoods should be proud of," said Bill Bragg, the founder of Rainbow Hodags.
Bragg hopes the exposure will help bring community members together.
The Rainbow Hodags and the Northland Highland LBGT community group host events all throughout the year.
