CARIBOU, Maine — The second annual Pagan Pride Day will be held noon-5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, at Collins Pond Park. People of all ages and spiritual backgrounds are welcome. The event will include information booths, vendors and other activities celebrating the autumn equinox, a time of thanksgiving in many Pagan traditions. A non-perishable food item to be donated to local charities will be accepted as admission.

The food drive gives participants a way to share with those who are less fortunate while making a positive statement about Paganism. For decades, Pagans have been wrongly accused of practicing devil-worship and performing “black magic.” In reality, most Pagans practice a religion emphasizing respect for nature, humanity, and oneself. Modern Paganism, or Neo-Paganism, is a growing religious movement based on combinations of ancient polytheism, modern eco-spirituality, and reference to the Divine as both masculine and feminine.

For more information about the event or about Pagan religions, call Sherri Cox at 540-3010, Barbara Hull at 999-2968, or email northernmainepaganpride@yahoo.com Additional information regarding Pagan Pride Day is located at www.paganpride.org.
