The sunshine and rainbows shone brightly at Saturday’s beachside Pacific Pride Festival, Pacific Pride Foundation’s annual festival celebrating Santa Barbara’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community. The free event, prioritizing the themes of belonging and access, featured an all-day lineup of live entertainment, food trucks, games, informational booths, and more, with areas carved out to focus on Arts, Health, Outdoors, Spirituality, and Social Justice — all with a joyful sense of fun, celebration, and pride, as documented here by our photographer Ingrid Bostrom.
