ROGERS PARK — Rogers Park will mark local holiday “626 Day” with special business promotions and the return of Pride North.

Pride North will go noon-10 p.m. Saturday-Sunday along Glenwood and Morse avenues. Billed as the city’s largest neighborhood-centric Pride event, Pride North will take over Glenwood Avenue and will include DJs performing on two stages throughout the day.

Grizzly, the Uptown-based, gay-friendly dance party, will host Sunday night’s entertainment. The Glenwood bar organizes the event, though other Glenwood Avenue businesses get involved in the festivities.
