Ron Burch Talks Downtown Diversity Pride Fest 2019

Ron Burch, Co-chair of the festival speaking about the events

Labor Day weekend for many is the unofficial end of summer. But before we close the book on summer 2019 there are many events taking place this weekend throughout the Four States including The Little Balkans Festival in Pittsburg, KS starting Friday.

If you’re looking for something fun to do on Saturday August 31 JOMO Pride Inc. is hosting their 2019 Downtown Diversity Pride Fest in Joplin, Mo. The event starts at 10:30 AM. On Tuesday Morning Edition, Ron Burch co-chair of the festival joined us to talk about the schedule of events, including which includes a performance of the national anthem. Ron also spoke about why the festival was moved from Landreth Park to downtown Joplin a couple of years ago and how that has lead to an increase of interest into the one-day festival.

2019 Downtown Diversity Pride Fest is open to the public and is family-friendly.
