RPC 2017 BUS TRIP TO THE NATIONAL PRIDE MARCH IN WASHINGTON, DC

RPC 2017 BUS TRIP

READING PRIDE CELEBRATION IS SPONSORING A BUS TO THE NATIONAL PRIDE MARCH IN WASHINGTON, DC ON JUNE 11, 2017

Be part of history and take a stand for equality!  Join us for the National PRIDE March in Washington, DC on June 11, 2017.

natl_pride_march.jpg

Drawing inspiration from the Women’s March on Washington, gay activists have announced plans for the National Pride March, a “mass” LGBT protest at the nation’s capital on June 11. This march will coincide with Washington DC PRIDE Festival.

 

We have 47 seats available on a charter coach bus with restroom. The buses will leave from Parking Lot “C” behind Willoughby’s On Park Road in Wyomissing at 5:30 am prompt and arrive in DC at 9:00 am with a brief stop at a fast food restaurant in the York area for those wanting to purchase breakfast and eating on the bus. We will try to get as close to the capital in DC as possible, but depending on the crowds predicted, the drop-off point might be at a Metro stop, in that case you may have to take a train to a gathering site for the march.  More information should become available closer to the date with specifics to drop-offs and pick-ups.  

You will have all day in DC with the march, speakers and festival.  We will depart later that afternoon at 4:30 pm prompt with an arrival in Wyomissing about 8:00 pm.  More details will be released when the organizers of the march release further information. Please remember that this is a grassroots march and you will need to be flexible on the day of the march.

 

The trip is $40.00 per person. This includes round trip to DC, and the driver’s tip.  You are responsible for any other costs you incur and transportation should you miss the bus departure.  Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable and are available on our website:  www.readingpridecelebration.org.

Note that all tickets need to be purchased before or on May 8th.  If the bus is not considered sold out it will be canceled and your money will be refunded.  

PLEASE NOTE: If the bus is sold out, you will be redirected here: http://www.readingpridecelebration.org/404
