Kick off Pride Season in the Hudson Valley with this first-ever Pride Night on the Walkway Over the Hudson!

Pride Flag Procession Across the Walkway

At dusk, a group of 100-plus flag marshals will parade a 15-foot-wide, 1,000-foot-long portion of Gilbert Baker’s original eight-color Pride flag from the Dutchess County side of the Walkway over the river to the Ulster County side.

Rainbow Bridge Lighting

The Walkway’s brand new LED lighting system will have the pathway illuminated in a wash of rainbow light for this first-time Pride celebration on the park.

Illuminated Costumes & Decor

What better way to make the most of a nighttime Pride event than to light it up? In addition to the rainbow lighting on the Walkway, everyone is encouraged to come in their best illuminated look. From bracelets and flashlights to full costumes and puppets, get ready to show your pride!

Plan Your Pride Season

Local LGBTQ+ community groups from Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Rockland, Columbia and Albany Counties will set up interactive booths in the parks on both sides of the Walkway to share information about their organizations and summer Pride activities happening throughout the region.

Live Entertainment for All Ages

A DJ-driven dance party hosted by Superior Sounds and DJ Ali Gruber will be going all night long at the center of the Walkway along with featured hosts from the LGBTQ+ community.
