For The Cause
You’re tired of not having a music scene, tired of driving out of the city for a good show. Or you are tired of driving out of town to play a show. That’s why we are here. We want something here, something accessible to us, something that we can be proud of and something we enjoy. This isn’t just for the musicians, this is for the teens with nothing to do on a Friday or Saturday night, this is for all the people who love music but have no way of getting to it in other cities. This is for the fans too, and not just one bands fans, but all the music fans in Ocala, and there are a lot of us.
Rainbow balloons, upbeat music, people from all walks of life gathered to support a cause; these are the things you can expect to find at this year’s Ocala Pride Fest. This is the 4th Annual Pridefest being held here in Ocala at CF (formerly CFCC) in the Klein center on October 2 from 12-7pm. It is a celebration of love and acceptance, where you are welcome to attend regardless of your orientation. All that is asked is respect and an open mind while you are there.
