SALISBURY — Salisbury’s gay pride organization will request a permit Tuesday to return to East Fisher Street for its third annual festival this summer. This time, the Salisbury Police Department supports the request.

Salisbury Pride will ask City Council to close the 100 block of East Fisher Street all day June 22 for the 2013 festival.

The festival would be split between East Fisher Street and the Wallace parking lot, which are adjacent. The main entertainment stage would remain in the parking lot, but vendors and informational booths would set up on East Fisher Street.

The Police Department and Salisbury Pride negotiated the compromise, according to police.
