Project Rainbow

But the largest display of Pride was put together by Lucas Horns, who was joined by the Utah Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce to place 500 flags from Springville to Logan, Utah as a fundraiser for the Utah Pride Center. #ProjectRainbow sold out weeks before Pride and were distributed earlier this week by volunteers in just two days.
