St Pete Pride is now accepting grand marshal nominations for the organization’s 17th annual celebration, currently scheduled for June 21-23.
“In 2014 we introduced Community Grand Marshals, allowing the community to vote on who they felt should be the St Pete Pride Grand Marshals,” the organization’s website reads.
“St Pete Pride is now accepting nominations for the 2019 Community Grand Marshals,” it continues. “Tell us your story about your local hero, activist or hidden gem. Let us know who we should recognize with the honor of St Pete Pride Grand Marshal.”
Individuals, organizations or businesses can be nominated using St Pete Pride’s nomination form. The organization requires users to complete six fields, including one limited to 750 characters which asks those nominating to “tell us a story that will pull on our heartstrings.”
Those chosen will be highlighted across all of St Pete Pride’s events, including their kick-off party and the St Pete Pride Parade. Nominations are currently live and can be made by clicking here.
