BANGOR, Maine — The Bangor Pride Festival will be held Saturday in West Market Square and feature a commitment ceremony for couples.

The festivities will begin at 11 a.m. with a parade from the waterfront to downtown.

The festival itself, sponsored by the Bridge Alliance, will be held from noon to 8 p.m. with live music and speakers throughout the afternoon in West Market Square.

A commitment ceremony for all couples will be conducted at 2 p.m.

The festival will conclude with a dance and gathering at 6:30 p.m. for the under-21 crowd.

The Bridge Alliance was founded five years ago. It grew out of Northern Maine Pride, which for more than a decade sponsored the gay pride parade in Bangor. Since its founding four years ago, the Bridge Alliance has offered monthly dances, a prom and events for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender families, such as Halloween and Christmas parties.
