Pagan Pride Day organizers hope event will educate others about Wicca

By Megan Sprague

Tolerance is the main message the organizers of Pagan Pride Day want to send Statesville and its surrounding communities. “Our goal is to let people know they have the freedom to believe,” said Heather Hamilton, known to her wiccan friends as “snoozepossum”. “Tolerance does not mean acceptance or agreement. We’re letting people know the facts.”

Hamilton, who lives in Mooresville, is a priestess at Carolina Grove, an informal meeting place for local “pagans, witches, wiccans, heathens, druids, shamans, new agers, mystics, tree-huggers, and others of like mind.” Pagan Pride Day is an annual event held in cities all over the United States.

Traditionally, Pagan Pride Day raises money for local charities, in addition to raising awareness for their religion.
