Vendors, exhibitors and participants alike enjoyed a day of mixing and mingling, as well as entertainment from local favorites Knowing Me, Knowing You and Space Capone, as well as nationally known singers Kaci Battaglia and Vanessa Carlton, who livened her set up a bit with a Pride-related announcement of her own.
