P.R.I.D.E Of Tuscaloosa Knows How To Throw A Party! 

P.R.I.D.E Of Tuscaloosa hosted their fall festival and it was so much fun! The community came out and had a great time!

To celebrate Red Ribbon Week, P.R.I.D.E Of Tuscaloosa hosted their fall festival with games, prizes, food trucks, and plenty of family fun! I had the pleasure of doing a live broadcast at the festival and I think I had a little too much fun.

The festival featured games like sack races, ring toss, and kicking football field goals. One of the favorites was the impairment goggles. During this activity, you had to put on goggles that allowed you to experience the effects of alcohol firsthand. I loved this activity and probably had too much fun with this activity. Miss Stillman College even stopped by for some fun!

 

While at the festival I learned what P.R.I.D.E Of Tuscaloosa is all about. P.R.I.D.E stands for Parents Resource Institute for Drug Education. According to its website, P.R.I.D.E is dedicated to creating awareness and passionate about preventing the onset of addiction and substance abuse in the Tuscaloosa and West Alabama area. They offer services in Tuscaloosa, Bibb, Pickens, Sumter, Greene, Hale, Marengo and Choctaw counties.

It was so cool to see members of the community come out and enjoy a safe evening out with their families. There was hand sanitizer everywhere, and everyone had on masks. Food trucks were in attendance and plenty of community resource organizations like Turning Point for domestic violence and sexual assault victims. The Tuscaloosa SAFE Center, Tuscaloosa Police Department, and other organizations were also in attendance.

Seeing these community organizations come out and volunteer their time for the benefit of their community members was amazing. Everyone had fun, plenty of people got hooked up with some prizes and every kid left with plenty of candy. Lol!
