Pride Week officially ends today. If you've somehow missed out on the festivities—including gay-themed trivia and leather night—don't sweat it. There is plenty going on today to show your support for the LGBT community.

Start the day off on the steps of the Capitol at 10:30 a.m. for the Pride rally, and then at 11 a.m., join the Pride parade that winds its way through downtown to Ann Morrison Park, where the Boise Pride Festival will get into full swing. There is a $3 fee to get into the festival, but you can get tickets at the rally to avoid waiting in lines at the park.

In addition to music, food and drink (take your ID if you want an adult beverage), there will also be vendor booths set up in the park. There will be an opportunity to register for the 2nd Annual Northwest LGBTA Conference for Hope and the Idaho Safe Schools Coalition, The Community Center, Pride Foundation, A.L.P.H.A. and more will be available to offer their info and services to the LGBT community and their family and friends.

Wrap up the night—and the week—with the after-party at the Lucky Dog Tavern at 9 p.m. The parking lot will be blocked off, and drinks will be flowin' outside as well as in the bar. There is a $5 cover charge, and you have to be 21 to join in.
