Boise Pride Festival To Be Streamed Online
Last night was an exciting one in downtown Boise as Boise Pride Festival lit up the Idaho State Capitol Building in the colors of the pride flag. A reminder to all that this weekend, we celebrate a simple principle: Love Is Love.
As always, we're excited to be partnering with Boise Pride and you'll be able to stream the entire event right here in our website and via our free app, if you want to follow along!
This event is so important to the core of 103.5 KISS FM. We hope you'll join us in watching and celebrating.
As stated on their event page:
2020 Virtual Boise Pride is here! We are celebrating our 31st anniversary a little differently this year but celebrate we will!
