Eastie Pride Day Turns 25: Join in on the fun on August 17!

Yes! You read that right! Eastie Pride Day has finally reached the quarter century mark. And what better way to commemorate the occasion than in true East Boston fashion! So mark your calendars because on Saturday August 17, 2013 we ask you to please join us at beautiful Piers Park on Marginal St. for the party of the summer. 

Eastie Pride Day is the brainchild of District 1 Boston City Councilor Salvatore LaMattina, a lifelong East Boston resident who felt that East Boston should be celebrated and honored for its rich history, diverse cultural backgrounds and its significance to the city of Boston as a whole. 

In the past, this time honored tradition has allowed people to reunite with old friends, meet new friends and welcome newcomers to the neighborhood. We’ll have activities for the kids, delicious food from many of our eclectic and trendy restaurants and live music and dancing -including our headline main event, Tavares. 

Twenty five years is no small feat. This event has grown tremendously over the years and we’d love for you to be a part of this special landmark celebration. Whether you’re a newcomer to the neighborhood, a current resident or someone who moved away long ago there’s no denying that East Boston is a special place that has a positive impact on all who have spent time here. 

So please come and join us for some breathtaking views of Boston Harbor and the Downtown skyline and let’s all say thank you to East Boston and acknowledge how much the community means to us. We hope to see you there!
