During the festival Mayor Adam Barringer read a city proclamation that expressed the city's support for the festival and the LGBTQ community at large.
“This is a celebration of all lifestyles and we have a very diverse community,” Barringer said, adding that he hoped the event would send a positive message to all cities and residents in Volusia County.
