NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nashvillians came together to celebrate human rights in the LGBTQ community.
The two-day Nashville Pride festival kicked off with an Equality Walk Saturday morning at Public Square Park.
Several vendors and non-profit organizations were downtown feeding and educating the public.
Saturday’s festivities were set to end with performances from Lizzo, Conrad Sewell, and Big Freedia.
Organizers said they're happy with the large turnout.
“Earlier this week we were nervous about the hurricane coming through,” Phil Cobucci, an organizer, said. “To have beautiful weather like this and then to have 20,000 people behind me is a really powerful emotion. I've had goosebumps most of the morning. It's just a really great thing to experience.”
