A fun filled week of New West Pride events kicks off August 6th and ends on August 13th with the New West Pride Street Party.   The New West Pride float made an appearance at the Vancouver Pride parade on July 31st.  The spectacular float was there to beckon us to New West for Pride, and none other than Keith Oberding was on that float showing off his world famous pearls.

Here is a listing of events for New West Pride.
