The annual Muskoka Pride Festival has a few things to celebrate this year.
First off, the Wahta First Nation will be joining the festivities for the first time this year by raising the pride flag.
Also on the agenda this year, is the wedding of two same-sex couples at the Pride Picnic in Bracebridge.
The two couples will exchange vows during the picnic and there will be musical entertainment offered by East Coast folk singer Irish Mythen.
The festival kicks off on July 15th with the barbecue in Huntsville.
