Tuesday's Pride Block Party was crazy awesome (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

Aug 31 2017, 3:17 am

Events at containR in Sunnyside are always a delight, but when you combine drag queens, live music, and a free, all-ages party that goes until 10 pm, you’ve got something very special on your hands.

The Pride Block Party kicked off at 6 pm on Tuesday, and for four hours performances by Soothesayer, ChiChi, Erica Dee, and DJ MollyFI kept the colourful crowd entertained.

Children were welcomed and in attendance, watching with delight as drag queens strutted across the stage—even in stilts!

After the sun went down the party picked up, with the crowd dancing under hypnotic lighting.

The Pride Block Party is just one of many Pride events happening throughout Calgary this week, all leading to the big Pride Parade on Sunday.

Here’s a peek into Tuesday’s celebration—just make sure to get out there and experience Calgary Pride for yourself over the next few days!

Rainbow Children. Celebrating love on all it’s frequencies. 🌈 #pride2017 #yycpride #bassbus #aintnopartylikeabassbusparty
