June 18, 2012 – UPDATE:
Edmonton’s NextGen is thrilled to received the award for “Best Overall Float” in the 2012 Pride Parade, presented by the Edmonton Pride Festival Society. A HUGE thanks goes to our more than 40 volunteers who walked, danced, and cheered along the parade route to help NextGen celebrate Edmonton’s diverse LGBT community.
Our float would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors: City of Edmonton, Allstar Show Industries, interVivos, Progress Unlimited, Ampersand Grey, Regency Developments, Bottom Line Productions, Notables, Gateway Press, and Broadway Across Canada.
