Organizers said that those attending the event were able to purchase tickets for their pride basket and raffles.
“So far, it’s wonderful,” said Director of Rochester LGBTQ+ Together Braden Reese. “People of all ages, races, ethnicities, backgrounds, and gender identities are just kind of hanging out and building a community here at the beach.”
