Heritage of Pride's official Pride Weekend capper is back where it belongs—under the stars, with the skyline glowing to the east and the Hudson shimmering to the west. Coheadlining DJs Grind and Pagano provide big beats sure to keep the huge crowd moving. There's always a variety of live performers—last year, dance diva Deborah Cox and cultural institution Cher took the stage; this year's headliner is Demi Lovato, and don't rule out a last-minute surprise (Jennifer Lopez and Whitney Houston are among the megastars who have dropped by with no advance fanfare). As the dance starts to wind down, cast your eyes to the sky for a fireworks display; for those who don't have to get up early tomorrow, that's your cue to move on and continue the party all over the city well into the night. You'll have no shortage of options.
