We'll see quickly whether PRIDE week-end translates into an economic benefit that can turn into an annual event like Happy Potter and Dickens, I happened to be staying in Staunton, Virginia last year (for football games at VT) for both their Harry Potter festival and their first PRIDE week-end. HP was a boomer there like here. Their PRIDE event was well-attended, but not of the magnitude of HP. 

I'm not sure that it matters about the economic impact that PRIDE has this week-end. The important thing... it put us on the map. The key will be seeing it develop a following that make it happen next year. We'll see.
