    Chicago pride is about to take on a whole new meaning this summer.

    As the city celebrates 50 years of pride festivities, a new event will be hosted downtown the day before the 2019 Pride Parade.

    Pride in the Park is set to take place on June 29 in Grant Park, marking the first time a pride event of such magnitude will be held downtown.

    The lineup for the event will be announced in April, according to organizers, who say “some of the world’s top musical talents” will join the list. There will also be food, drinks, vendors and an evening fireworks display.

    Tickets range from $50 for general admission to $100 for VIP.

    The 2019 Pride Parade is set to step off June 30.
