Somewhere over the rainbow, or in this case, at various locations in Calgary, you can get all the rainbow items in time for Pride.
The 27th Calgary Pride Festival runs August 25 to September 4. The biggest single event is the parade taking place Sunday, September 3 starting at noon. More than 150 participant groups march in the parade amongst 60,000 other spectators. It’s the perfect opportunity to have rainbow tinted highlights applied just right. If you miss the parade, don’t despair, there will be various other events going on for the nine days of the festival.
Without further ado, here’s a list of prismatic product to perfect your Pride experience.

This shirt doesn’t just look good – purchasing it goes on to do good. There are four versions of this tee available at Native Tongues, Proof, Vine Arts, and The Beltliner. All money from the sales will go to supporting Camp fYrefly which is a retreat for LGBTQ youth.
