n its 27 years, the Duluth-Superior Pride Festival hasn’t always been a joyous affair.
Just 17 years ago, the festival, then held on Wisconsin Point, ended on a sour note when a group smashed the car windows of attendees, apparently spurred by anti-gay bias.
And before Herb Bergson did it in 2004, no Duluth mayor had issued a proclamation of support of the festival.
“That was a big deal because we’d never been able to get it before,” said Harvey Plasch, co-chairman of the festival, of the first year they received mayoral support.
The festival, this year themed “What a Difference a Gay Can Make,” will take place this weekend.
