Today at Halifax Pride: July 24

All the fun to be had at the festival's closing day.

It's the final day of the 2022 Halifax Pride festival. Make the most of every last minute with this guide to what's on, featuring all-ages drag shows and more:

Today's top billing goes to Pride's annual fest-closing adventure, the Dykes vs Divas softball game. The sporting event/ball-diamond-turned-runway is held at the Canada Games Baseball Diamond, on the Halifax Common. You can cheer on the city's best pitchers and catchers from 4-6pm.

A pair of shows by Dis-drag! are held today: Families will flock to the all-ages show Dis-drag! is doing with Dragtopia at The Bus Stop Theatre at 11am. The pay-what-you-can gig sees local queens impersonating Disney princesses. Dis-drag!'s second show of the day—8:30pm at The Bus Stop Theatre—takes the nostalgia and turns it 19+.

A free HIV self-test pop-up booth will be located on the south Common at 1:30pm, near the ball diamond where Dykes vs Divas will be held.

Pride Review: A sharing circle is the place to decompress post-fest. Held at 3pm at St. John's United Church, 6025 Stanley Street.

The McPhee Centre for Creative Learning is throwing a youth pride picnic at 4pm at Christ Church in Dartmouth.

A campfire and screening of the family movie Hotel Transylvania 3: Transformania will be held at 6pm at St. John's United Church, 6025 Stanley Street.

Sackville Summer Concerts: Pride Edition sees Andrew Muise and Roy Angel performing a free set at Sackville's Acadia Park. The show starts at 7pm.
