   A controversial contract that would bring two major music festivals to downtown St. Louis is moving forward in the Board of Aldermen.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the convention and tourism committee Wednesday gave 8-0 approval to a bill that would give Summer Rocks LLC exclusive access to the Gateway Mall over Memorial Day and Labor Day for music festivals.  

   The bill would also prevent the city from allowing another for profit music event anytime during the summer.

   Dozens of residents and local musicians voiced their opposition to the 20 year lease during a three hour hearing before the committee vote.  

   The measure now moves to the full Board of Aldermen, who aren't expected to vote on it until sometime in April.

   Besides edible offerings, the event features a Culinary show, musical performances and a hot sauce showcase.  More than 400-thousand people turned out for last year's Taste.  

   This year's event kicks off at Soldier's Memorial in downtown St. Louis Friday at 4:00 p.m. and runs through Sunday.

   The 34th annual PrideFest in St. Louis will make history next weekend when U.S. military personnel officially participate.  

   The parade and festival, which began 30 years ago in Forest Park, has moved to downtown St. Louis near Soldier's Memorial.  

   Both city and county police will have a booth at the festival.  And the military liaison for the LGBT Center of St. Louis will have uniformed service men and women walking in Sunday's parade.  They'll also lay a wreath at Soldier's Memorial, to remember those lost before "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was lifted.  

   Pridefest 2013 will be Saturday and Sunday, June 29th and 30th.

   More information about the parade and festival can be found at the Pride St. Louis website.
