At Hi-Wire Brewing on Princess Street in Wilmington, a pride fest, organized by Hi-Wire and Varnish Nightclub, taking place to benefit the LGBTQ Center of the Cape Fear Coast.

At the event, attendees enjoyed a local makers market, food, and fun.
A free drag performance was also provided for entertainment, allowing up-and-coming performers to make their debut.
