The 2015 Poster Contest

The 2015 Mid-South Festival and Parade Theme is Love Equals Love. This theme expresses the idea that there is love in diversity and we are excited to celebrate all Love! Our theme is expressed throughout our Festival and Parade and we encourage all of our sponsors, festival and parade entries along with patrons to participate in expressing how Love Equals Love to them.

This year we are extending our Theme to a poster competition!!! The mission of the poster contest is to put a spotlight on the outstanding artists in our community, and to give them the opportunity to to paint a portrait of their visions of Pride in the Mid-South.
