kybearfuzz: (Happy Larry)
So Friday night was the last Pride Night at King's Island in Cincinnati, Ohio. The planner explained that there are sponsor conflicts and less enthusiasm by the new owners to keep it going. If I won that big lottery money a few weeks back, I'd keep it going for the next 20 years. It's the only time I ever go to the park -- no lines, few kids, no overwhelming crowds, just a bunch of wonderful gays and our families having a night to ourselves.

To make it even more special, [profile] mikiedoggie and his other half John came down from Chicago (along with several other Chicago folks) to enjoy the last Pride Night. One of the wonderful things about the night is seeing so many friends that you usually don't see out very much. Also in attendance was [profile] _decibel_ and [profile] kybigstew as well as several bears from my softball night.

Even with the dreaded boot on my foot, I managed to keep up. Because of the boot, I had to get a pass to see if I could ride the rides. Because I could take the boot off without hurting myself, I could ride everything, but some rides I had to remove it. The Banshee above was one of the six. The plus of having this "hall pass" of sorts was that I could cut any line and take three people with me. So I pulled this pass on a few rides (including The Banshee) and took a few of the crew with me.

We made it the entire night, heading out at midnight. I certainly hate to see Pride Night disappear, but I'm hopeful that it may reappear in the future sometime.
