One of the more visible elements of the under construction Eagle Plaza public parklet will be dedicated Sunday, September 22, at the culmination of the annual Leather Walk. At around 2 p.m. a dedication ceremony will be held for a new 80-foot flagpole at the Harrison Street entrance to the plaza, which has design features celebrating the city's leather and LGBTQ communities. Plaza backers will raise a brand new 25 foot by 15 foot leather pride flag.

Located in front of the Eagle, whose flagpole and leather flag can be seen in the above photo, the bar will be hosting an expanded beer bust Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. and will be closing Harrison Street between Division and 11th Street for the party. That stretch of Harrison will be closed to vehicle traffic for the free, 21-and-older event featuring beer and cocktail service, booths, and entertainment.

As for the $1.85 million plaza, it should open later this year. The 12,500 square foot parklet is being built on 12th Street between Harrison and Bernice streets.
