Adirondack Pride celebration to be held at Cocktails this Sunday

"They've been great," said Trombley. "And, we want people to know we will be able to shuttle them to the festival for a couple dollars to cover the cost of gas if they need a ride. If I can get enough people to tell me where they're at ahead of time, we can even have central pick-up points."

Doors will open this Sunday, June 13, at 12 p.m., with family-friendly activities, including a PRIDE Idol Contest featuring former American Idol contestant Nate Marshall, and a dance contest.

The family-friendly fun will end at 8 p.m., when "An Evening in Wonderland," an adult-oriented cabaret, begins.

"That's when it gets a little racy and when we have some comedians that wouldn't be appropriate for kids," said Trombley. "It'll be a wild show."

There will be no charge for admission to the smoke-free event. Proceeds from the 50/50 drawing and other donations will be benefit the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York and Elmore SPCA animal shelter in Peru, two organizations supported by the committee.

"We really want people to show up to show their support and raise some money for some good causes," said Trombley.

Those interested in more information about the Adirondack Pride Festival may contact Trombley at 645-6407 or visit the event's Web pages at www.facebook.com/adirondackpride or www.myspace.com/adirondackpride. Volunteers are being sought to help with setting up, operating and taking down games during the day as well, said Trombley.

"We could definitely use a hand if anyone's willing to help," he said. "All they have to do is give me a call."
