Seattle Pride pays off 2006 festival debt

SEATTLE - Organizers of Seattle Pride made their final payment to the City of Seattle.

The group was in the red after their 2006 festival and owed the city approximately $100,000.

Organizers have been paying off installments each year, but Saturday at the annual Pride Picnic, the group's board of directors presented Mayor Ed Murray with the final $15,508 check.

"It's so amazing," Adam McRoberts with Seattle Pride said. "It's been such a process over the last 8 years to really get us to where we are today."

Seattle Pride has since restructured and organizers say they are better prepared for the costs associated with future events.
