Riverfront Park in Harrisburg was colorful on Saturday afternoon for the 23rd Annual Pride Festival of Central Pennsylvania. The day included food, music, shopping and even a drag show. Those involved say it was one of the most successful years yet with hundreds of people taking part and enjoying the entertainment. Organizers expect it to be even bigger next year.

"Every year it gets a little bit bigger. We are always trying to shove more vendors in our space, it's a good problem to have. The rights are going in the right direction and pride is going in the right direction as well," says Andrew Campbell, Executive Vice President of the Pride Festival.

This was the first Pride Festival of Central Pennsylvania since same sex marriage was legalized across the country.
