“Be the Rainbow” Pet Pride Parade

Tails at the Barkery is sponsoring the “Be the Rainbow” Pet Pride Parade in Historic Cocoa Village.  Dress your pet in a “Be the Rainbow” costume and enjoy a walk through Cocoa Village for a day-full of Rainbow Pride.  Awards will be presented to the top three “most creative rainbow” dressed pets.

Throughout the day, Hello Again Books in Cocoa Village will offer free activities and events to honor and celebrate LGBTQ+ pride within our community.  Come dressed to “Be the Rainbow”.  Wear your bright colors, your unicorn t-shirt, your tutu… whatever makes you feel happy, full of pride, and ready to celebrate diversity!  Three fabulous raffle gift baskets will be on display at Hello Again Books.  Donate $1 for each raffle ticket for a chance to win.  All proceeds collected during this 2nd Annual “Be the Rainbow” Pride in the Village event will go to The Trevor Project.

Founded in 1998, The Trevor Project is an American nonprofit organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth.  Representatives from The Trevor Project will be in attendance so we can learn more about who they are and show our support.

11am:  A Moment of Remembrance
June 12th marks the 6th anniversary of the Pulse shooting.  This is about remembering the victims, survivors, families, and all of those impacted by this event, including the community.

11:00am-5pm:  “Be the Rainbow” Sticker Scavenger Hunt
Get your map at Hello Again Books and then collect a sticker from each of the participating stores identified on the map.  Feel free to wear your stickers, stick them on your map, keep them for later…just collect them all!

5pm:  Drawings will take place at Hello Again Books to announce the winners of the gift baskets.  Winners do not need to be present to win.

Don’t forget to take photos of your “Be the Rainbow” outfits, decor, and celebration and post them on social media.
