Pagan in Buddhist Burma, now called Bagan, Myanmar, land of 10,000 shrines (wiki)
Today is Pagan Pride Day and is being celebrated in Long Beach, which bridges LA and the OC. Basic Information:

  • Rainbow Lagoon Park
  • East Shoreline Drive (enter @ Linden Ave.)
  • Long Beach, CA. 90802
  • (across from Shoreline Village Drive)

(Corvid Chaser) The 7th year beckoned 700 people, an incredible scene that catered to a diverse neo Pagans and Wiccans. We follow the parade to the arboretum for the opening blessing then attend workshops on shamanism and animal communication. Also in Berkeley, CA.
Parking change! Parking is ACROSS THE STREET FROM the Rainbow Lagoon (at Marina Green), not the Convention Center parking. It still costs $10. Look for directional signs. 
Picnics allowed. Family-friendly event with children's activities. There will be food trucks part of the day and there are restaurants across the street. Press and filming will be on site, but anyone can decline to be interviewed/photographed.

(Kristian Lander) Pagan Pride is bigger in England
  • Pagan Pride 2016 was held on Sunday August 7th, 2016 with a vibrant atmosphere, colorful costumes, friendly folks, and great music. Filmmaker edition with overlay comments and notes unlike a similar video on the #PaganPrideUK Channel.
