A yearly event that attracts thousands of people and dozens of community groups will be held this weekend.

The 14th annual Vail Pride Day will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the Pima County Fairgrounds, 11300 S. Houghton Road.

This year's theme is "We Love Vail." The free event will include "Academic Jeopardy" and Math Bowl competitions, a fun run, and classroom, educational, art and science displays, according to a news release from event organizers.

There'll be food vendors and musical and special performances, and informational displays about community organizations.

Vail Pride Day is a Vail School District community tradition, according to the news release. It was founded in 1999 by Governing Board member Anne Gibson as a way to honor and showcase the area's students, staff, volunteers, clubs, businesses and community-service groups.
