This Saturday, June 19, Star City Pride will be hosting their first ever in-person Pride Parade.

Over the weekend, more than 60 volunteers helped install the annuals at Sunken Gardens for their Wake Up The Beds event. This year’s “Ruby Slippers” theme harkens back to the original intent of the gardens when it was created in the midst of the Depression: to provide something beautiful to the city of Lincoln in uncertain times, and to remind the community that there’s no place like home.
