NORTHALSTED — Market Days returned this weekend after a year away due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Crowds of people filled the streets of Northalsted to celebrate at the fest, which has turned into a celebration of LGBTQ pride.
The festival was not without some controversy, as Howard Brown called for more coronavirus safety precautions. The event offered vaccinations and testing.
But the weekend saw much joy, with people dancing, waving rainbow flags and fans and buying from local vendors.
