From Jill Sumner, Vice President, Warren County Pride, Inc.

The North PA Ghostbusters kicked off the fifth annual Warren County Pride Day (WCPD) at Betts Park in Warren, Pennsylvania, on June 15th, 2024. The event featured Buffalo's Willa DeWhisp, Jamestown's Miss Kimzie, Que Queer, Telly Tease, Pittsburgh's Ms. Kristy Kreme and XNX Kameleon, and Warren's Miss Jessica Rabbit.

Sara Culver, president of Warren County Pride Incorporated (WCPI), the group coordinating WCPD, said, "People were well-entertained, and it was 100% family friendly. It had an uplifting, empowering theme throughout the acts."

The all-ages event included costume contests, games, a live DJ, and BINGO hosted by Ms. Kristy Kreme. Hoop artists Brandy Welch and Transcendance circulated among over 3,500 tri-state region attendees and over 70 agencies and vendors. Paws Along the River Humane Society brought adoptable dogs and kittens to their tree-shaded grassy spot; one dog was adopted, and many applications were received. Michael Kenton Mahler of the Erie Gay News declared WCPD to be an absurdly wholesome and entertaining event.

Ms.Kristy Kreme and XNX Kameleon were selected as 2024 WCPD Queen and King, respectively. "Warren County Pride is an amazing event run by an amazing team, and with an amazing community backing it," 2024 WCPD Queen Ms. Kristy Kreme said. WCPD talent coordinator Chad Schuler said, "I am proud to produce a family-friendly show for all to enjoy, and I thank all of the performers for their hard work."

Two after-hours shows were featured at Struthers Library Theatre, and an aftershow party was held at Jamestown's Sneakers bar.
