Due to the expected rain forecast, organizers of the Albert Lea Pride Festival on Saturday have decided to move the event indoors. Originally planned to be held at Central Park, the festival will now take place from noon to 4 p.m. at the City Arena at 701 Lake Chapeau Drive.

“While the location has changed, our commitment to celebrating pride, diversity and community remains as strong as ever,” a press release states. “By moving indoors to the spacious City Arena, we can continue to offer a fantastic lineup of activities, performances and fun without the worry of inclement weather impacting our day.”
