Dunk Tank

Support area non-profit groups by participating in the dunk tank. For $5 you get 3 balls to throw at the target to try and dunk our celebrity!

Are you a non-profit group that is looking to raise money for your organization and have fun while doing it? Well we want to partner with you during the 2018 Kentuckiana Pride Festival!

Groups can reserve the dunk tank for an hour during the day on Saturday, June 16. You will be responsible for staffing the tank with volunteers who will promote your group, collect fees from players, and ultimately sit in the tank. The idea is to have someone in the tank who will attract a lot of attention for your organization so you raise the most money possible. All money raised is kept by the group working the tank.

Dance Says and Twerk Contest

On Saturday Night after Lizzo’s performance come on over to the fun on the River Road Stage. We are going to be tearing up the dance floor with Dance Says and then we’ll crown the twerk champion for 2018! You won’t want to miss all this excitement to close out Pride.
