Over 80 IBA Members, guests and friends marked Philly’s 26th PrideDay Celebration with the 2nd Annual IBA Pride Day Cruise aboard Entertainment Cruises’ Freedom Elite Yacht.
Guests were treated to a scenic 2-hour cruise on the Delaware River with remarkable views of the Philadelphia & Camden skylines, fantastic door prizes & a fabulous lunch menu—all while taking in the PrideDay festivities on Penn’s Landing’s Festival Pier from the decks of the exclusive Freedom Elite.
The weather could not have been more perfect for a cruise along the Delaware to celebrate and take Pride in the region’s vibrant, diverse and ever-growing LGBT Business Community! Thank you to our many members, guests, community and corporate partners and in particularly the Captain & Crew of the Freedom Elite who helped add to the festivities and make this event the HUGE success it was!
