    Name: Family PRIDE CommUNITY Picnic
    Date: June 17, 2017
    Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce the first Family Pride CommUNITY Picnic in Union County, celebrating marriage equality in the state of New Jersey, on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. at Rahway River Park. This free family-friendly event invites LGBTQ family equality advocates and allies from all over the Garden State to come out to the park and celebrate the strength of our diversity, and to honor the great strides we’ve made in the movement for equality. In 2013, New Jersey became the 16th state with marriage equality, granting same-sex couples the security of marriage in New Jersey. Since the federal marriage equality ruling in 2015, thousands of same-sex couples have married state-wide and across state lines. The free Family PRIDE CommUNITY Picnic event aims to reach beyond the Union County borders and invites all families across the state to join us to celebrate family and marriage equality. A celebration of all families, Union County’s first Family PRIDE CommUNITY Picnic will feature music, arts and crafts, family field day team games, inflatable bounce houses, playground fun, and many other family activities. A family equality rally will kick off at 1:00 p.m. with special guest speakers and performances. Esteemed children’s music band, Michael and the Rockness Monsters will close out the day’s celebration with a live family concert in the park. More info at ucnj.org/pride.
