Today is June 1st, which means it's the first official day of Pride Month - and it means we're coming up on Pride Weekend right here in Missoula.

Missoula is going all out for Pride this year with a variety of different events all over town, and we've covered a bunch of them pretty extensively.

Here's a rundown of what we've covered so far:

- Draught Works Brewery unveiling the "Say Gay" Juicy Pale Ale, the official beer of Missoula Pride

- The Farm Fresh Pride Fest at Imagine Nation Brewing

- Pride Revival Comedy Night at the ZACC

- The Pride Fun Run & Walk Hosted by Run Wild Missoula

- Pride Night Game and Tailgate with the Missoula Paddleheads

- Live Body Painting at Monk's Bar in Missoula for Pride Weekend

- Pride on Ice at Glacier Ice Rink

- The Missoula Pride Parade and Street Party

- Poetry and Jazz with Smooth Sayers at the Missoula Public Library

- Heavy Metal Pride Weekend at Dark Horse

- All the Missoula Pride Afterparties on Saturday night

That's a lot of stuff, and that isn't even everything! So naturally, we've got to wrap things up in style.

Check Out the Pride Closing Party on Sunday

Sunday will bring Missoula's Pride Weekend to a close, so why not have one last party to celebrate? The Pride Closing Party will take place at the new AC Hotel Lounge in downtown Missoula from 8 PM to 10 PM on Sunday, June 5th. You'll be able to grab a casual cocktail and enjoy music courtesy of DJ Kris Moon. Sounds like a relaxing way to finish off a weekend that will see some do a lot of intense partying.
