FERNDALE, Mich. (WXYZ) — Ferndale Pride 2020 has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, organizers announced on Tuesday.

The event was moved from June to September, but organizers said out of an abundance of caution, they canceled the event.

The 10th anniversary of the event is now scheduled for Saturday, June 5, 2021.
