Community members in Anoka County are celebrating youth pride during a fourth annual event by the nonprofit Justin’s Gift.

The event is for LGBTQ youth, their families, their friends and other community members and neighbors. It includes raffles, games, food, kickball, face painting, relay races, crafts and more.

Organizers say activities are geared toward middle school and high school students, but all ages are invited.

Activities take place from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park. It’s free and open to the public.

Justin’s Gift was established to create a safe environment for students, especially in the Anoka-Hennepin School District and surrounding area. Learn more about the organization here.
