The start of Summer ends with a drag…show

My Summer Solstice Celebration wouldn’t be complete without a stop by Schenectady Pride.

The atmosphere was festive with live music and street vendors on Jay St., but it was a great opportunity to relax on a beautiful Saturday evening.

Some of the music was hit and miss, but 2 former Schenectady and Albany high school grads stole the show with an excellent performance of two original songs. I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before they have their own record deal.

The highlight of the night (I arrived too late to see the dog show) was the drag show! They could really move, and I highly recommend that you attend next year. I was impressed watching one do a cartwheel in 6″ heels. The event may not be as large as some cities, but it’s still fun regardless. I wasn’t able to attend the after party drag show at Clinton’s pub, however…perhaps next year.

Half the fun is watching the passers-by who stumbled upon such a great display of talent unexpectedly, and then had to navigate through the crowd. It was a Candid Camera moment!
