North County Pride to move festival location

OCEANSIDE, Calif. -- After six years hosting Pride @ the Beach, North County Pride announced it will move to a new location a couple blocks east to accommodate its growth.

North County Pride 2014 will take place on Oct. 11, from 6-11 pm in downtown Oceanside on Pier View Street next to City Hall. The new location will not only offer expanded space for vendors, an art alley, educational presentations and a kids garden, this year the pride festival will also be free to the public.

Along with the many changes to the festival also comes a new Pride director, Shannon Rose, who will head the five-person executive committee.

Each year, Pride @ the Beach funds North County Pride’s Annual Gay/Straight Alliance Awards, which recognize Gay/Straight Alliance clubs in North County middle schools and high schools.
